A Two-Year Report on the Experimental Freshman Year Program. Chapter VI, Summary, Conclusions, and Recommendations.
Kibler, Robert J., Ed.
Presented are the summary, conclusions, and recommendations after two years of the Experimental Freshman Year Program for underachieving high school graduates at Southern Illinois University. Findings are presented under four headings--(1) subjects' occupation or whereabouts in the year following their participation in the program, (2) retention of subjects during the freshman year and during their sophomore year when they were enrolled in the regular university curriculum, (3) quality of subjects' academic performance, and (4) prediction of subjects' academic performance. Recommendations include suggestions for additional research, curriculum changes, and admission and dismissal criteria. Appended is a special report which was prepared by a committee of Southern Illinois University personnel and which contains recommendations on the "re-direction of academically unsuccessful students". (For other chapters of this report, see UD 005309, UD 006858, UD 006859, UD 006860, and UD 006861.) (LB)
