The Academic Achievement and Social Mobility of Community College Transfer and Native Students in a Professional Education Program.
Smith, Richard R.
Grade point averages of students transferring from community colleges were compared with those of the native students in a professional education program. Questionnaires concerning socioeconomic backgroups were also analyzed. A significant difference of grade point average existed in favor of native students for the first year. Mean grade point averages rose for both groups in the second semester, the native group's to a greater degree. Differences in socioeconomic status between the two groups did not appear significant, nor were there great differences in the goals of the two groups. (RS)
