THE EFFECT OF FORCED COUNSELING--INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP--WITH STUDENTS TRANSFERRING INTO THE GENERAL COLLEGE ON PROBATION.
KINGSLEY, G. GORDON; SCHELLER, THOMAS G.
SUBJECTS FOR THIS STUDY WERE 60 RANDOMLY SELECTED LOW ACHIEVING UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA STUDENTS WHO HAD TRANSFERRED FROM 4-YEAR CURRICULUMS TO THE 2-YEAR GENERAL COLLEGE. ONE GROUP OF 20 STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN SIX WEEKLY INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS WITH ASSIGNED COUNSELORS, A SECOND GROUP OF 20 MET IN SIX 50-MINUTE GROUP COUNSELING SESSIONS, AND THE 20-MEMBER CONTROL GROUP RECEIVED NO COUNSELING. WHILE THE INDIVIDUALLY COUNSELED GROUP EARNED THE HIGHEST GRADE POINT AVERAGE AND THE CONTROL GROUP WAS LOWEST, INTERGROUP DIFFERENCES WERE NOT SIGNIFICANT AT THE .05 CONFIDENCE LEVEL. ALTHOUGH STUDENTS' PREDICTIONS OF THEIR OWN GRADE AVERAGES FOLLOWED THE SAME TREND, WITH THE INDIVIDUALLY COUNSELED STUDENTS SHOWING THE GREATEST SUCCESS AND THE CONTROL GROUP THE LEAST, DIFFERENCES AMONG GROUPS WERE NOT SIGNIFICANT. A FOLLOWUP STUDY TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE COUNSELING PROCESS HAD LONG RANGE EFFECTS ALSO SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES. THE AUTHORS CONCLUDE THAT SHORT TERM FORCED COUNSELING IS NOT EFFECTIVE IN DEALING WITH "UNDERACHIEVEMENT" PROBLEMS. THIS DOCUMENT IS VOLUME 2, NUMBER 2 OF "THE GENERAL COLLEGE STUDIES," 1965-66.
