Graduate Student Characteristics.
Clements, William H.
As a first step in "improving and building up" the graduate program at the Wisconsin State University at Stevens Point, a study of graduate students was initiated in 1967. It examined the interrelationships of their graduate majors, undergraduate majors and colleges, high school deciles and class size, age, sex, level taught, geographic location, year of matriculation, and M.A.T. scores. Although most of the study was concerned with the 774 students who were active in July, 1969, data are included on students enrolled from the program's beginning in July 1960. It was found that most degrees (52 of 90) had been awarded in either English or elementary education, and of those currently enrolled, most (464 of 774) had received their undergraduate degrees at Stevens Point. It was evident that the graduate program had greatly expanded in recent years. Most students limit their studies to summers, however, and this helps to account for the large number currently enrolled and the small number of degrees awarded. Extensive use is made of tables and figures to present this data, and trends are noted. No specific recommendations are made. (DS)
