A Research Report of the North Carolina Advancement School: Spring Semester 1968 Followup.
North Carolina Advancement School, Winston-Salem.
This research report is the first extensive follow-up which the North Carolina Advancement School has conducted on former students. The School, a residential school for underachievers, was established to conduct research into the causes and possible remedies of underachievement. The subjects, eighth-grade boys, attended the School in Spring 1968. The followup study was designed to determine what effect the Advancement School experience had on school performance the following school year. Some of the results are: (1) half of the subjects were achieving better grades; (2) no differences were found in intelligence of achievement levels; and, (3) some changes were noted in attitudes. For related reports, see UD 011 076-077 and 011 079-081. (Author/JW)
