A Study of Selected Characteristics of Transfer Students at Appalachian State University.
Sibley, Albin Michael
The success of junior college teaching of the transfer student is judged by his success at the senior college. The junior college must therefore know how well he does after transfer, if it is to evaluate and improve its teaching methods. The senior college should also know the characteristics of its incoming transfers if it is to provide the best possible guidance. This study investigated the characteristics of 154 transfers and their academic performance in the senior colleges, and compared them with transfers from private junior colleges and other senior institutions. They had enrolled in the fall of 1966 and remained for the year. Twenty-four students were from community junior colleges, 44 were from private junior colleges, and 86 were from other senior colleges. It was expected that the grade point average for the community college students would rise for each successive quarter, as it did for the other two groups. It was found, however, that it remained basically the same. Tables show other data which were recorded in the course of the study, such as age, sex, and number of hours transferred. (HH)
