Reap, Margaret C.
Findings are presented for each of five surveys conducted by North Harris County College using the Texas Student Information System (TEX-SIS). The report first presents and discusses the results of an educational intent survey, based on responses from approximately 7,395 students registered in credit hour courses during 1977-78. Results of a student withdrawal study are then provided, based on responses from 1,849 students who withdrew from courses during 1976-77 and 1977-78. Next, a summary is included of survey responses of 876 students who attended credit courses in Fall 1976, Spring 1977, and Fall 1977, but who did not enroll in the semester immediately following. Follow-up data gathered from 213 students who graduated between 1975 and 1978 are then discussed, delineating occupational/educational status and graduates' assessment of their college experience. Survey responses from 292 continuing education students are then analyzed. Additionally, a transfer student report is included that displays the schools attended by graduates and non-returning students and their major fields of study. Finally, TEX-SIS publications are cited that provide statewide, composite data in the same areas. (JP)
