A Followup Study of the CETA College Adapter Program. Final Report.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational Education Research.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) project completers in the college adapter program (CAP) have shown evidence of successful performance in a postsecondary program. Specific objectives of the project were (1) to determine the number of CETA project completers who matriculated at college, (2) to determine the extent of continuation at college by CETA project completers, (3) to determine the number of former CAP clients who completed a college program, and (4) to detect any client variables which may be related to college continuation or completion rates. Among the findings were that the majority of clients have attained the educational qualifications prerequisite to college admission and that there is a 75% retention rate for clients who actually matriculated. Other findings indicate differences between the characteristics of clients admitted to different courses of study and clients admitted to different colleges. (Included in the appendixes are CAP CETA program descriptions, college admissions and characteristics of CETA clients in the CAP, and CAP characteristics by courses of study.) (LRA)
