Life Change Following "You Too Can Return to College": A Reassessment Series.
Smith, Jeanne W.; Regan, Mary
Reassessment for reentry has become a popular concept on college campuses as more nontraditional students return to college. A reassessment series, offered at the University of California-Davis from 1973-1977, was evaluated in a one-year follow-up study of the life changes for 234 female and 12 male participants. Data indicated that life change had occurred for 80% of the participants and that 57% had enrolled in college. The age group most likely to enroll was between ages 30 and 45. The point at which children entered school seemed to be a very crucial time for the participants to make changes. Most subjects felt the series had given them encouragement to enter college and help in goal clarification. Results suggest that individual experiences coupled with participant's suggestions and feedback can be used to design an ideal reassessment plan. (Author/NRB)
