Research into Higher Education 1970; Papers Presented at the Annual Conference of the Society for Research into Higher Education (6th).
Society for Research into Higher Education, Ltd., London (England).
This report presents three papers that were prepared for the 6th annual conference of the Society for Research into Higher Education, a London based organization. The 1st paper is "Factors Influencing Choice of Higher Education," by Margaret D. McCreath. She discusses part of an intensive study of the transition between school and higher education made in 1967, including: (1) the extent to which the students were aware of higher education entry requirements; (2) from whom they got most guidance at times of subject choice; (3) with whom they discussed their intended applications to higher education institutions; and (4) what they would do after school. Their responses are analyzed in terms of ability, higher education aim, and family knowledge of higher education. The 2nd paper:"Educational Objectives and Student Performance within the Binary System," by N.J. Entwistle and K.A. Percy deals with a research project underway at the Department of Educational Research at Lancaster that aims to: (1) identify the characteristics of successful students in the 3 sectors of British higher education; and (2) reexamine the objectives of the various institutions that comprise the system of higher education. The 3rd paper: "Cooperative Research in Teacher Education: Progress and Prospects," by E. Stones reviews some research projects on teaching in higher education. (AF)
