Characteristics and Performances of High School Graduates and Non-Graduates in One-Year Programs in the Community College System of Institutions in North Carolina.
Bell, Arthur P.
A sample of 622 high school graduates and 383 nongraduates enrolled in 13 different vocational curriculums in 12 post-high school institutions of less than baccalaureate degree level was studied to compare their characteristics and performance after completing a 1-year program. Data were taken from school records on file at the institutions. Some findings were: (1) The high school graduates were younger than the nongraduates, (2) More females than males had graduated from high school, (3) More single students than married students were high school graduates, (4) The graduates made higher scores on seven of nine aptitudes tested, (5) The graduates spent less time in training to complete their programs and achieved higher grades, (6) Females made higher grades than males, (7) The married students made higher grades than the single students, and (8) There were no significant relationships between area of residence, military service, and employment status at the time of application for enrollment and the grades achieved. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to The Pennsylvania State University.(WB)
