A Preliminary Survey of the Academic Performance of Transfer Students Who Graduated in June, 1967.
Appalachian State Teachers Coll., Boone, NC.
This report compares the grades of transfer students at Appalachian State University with the grades of native students. It also shows the choice of academic major of the transfers and compares their cumulative grade point averages with the native students' averages in these major fields. A random sample of the records of 82 transfers and 82 natives was examined. It was noted that the native students' grades were generally higher than the transfer students'. None of the transfer students achieved more than a 3.50 average. Their mean over-all quality-point rating was 2.65. For the native students, the mean rating was 2.78. The quality-point ratings for some of the major fields were inconclusive as so few students took the courses. Other disciplines could not be compared at all, as they lacked students from one group or the other. (HH)
