A Comparison of Handicapped College Students and College Students in General.
Purdy, George D.
This study attempted to gain a better understanding of handicapped students in college. The basic purposes of the study were: (1) to find out how well handicapped students compare, gradewise, with the general population of college students, and (2) to report these findings in order that rehabilitation counselors might profit from additional knowledge about handicapped college students. The data were secured from two sources: (1) final computations made by computer used by the administration at the University of Georgia, and (2) official grades issued by the university. The results show that the rehabilitation counselor does an excellent job of screening handicapped students. The handicapped students were higher in grade point average than college students in general. However, female college students in general had a grade point average higher than the handicapped females. Recommendations for further study are made. (Author/PS)
