Academic Performance of L.A.C.C. Transfers Entering the University of California During the Academic Year 1967-68.
Gold, Ben K.
For years, the University of California has sent an annual report to Los Angeles City College (LACC) on the academic performance of its transfers in their first semester and comparative data on all other California junior college transfers. In 1966-67, the report format was changed because of the switch to the quarter calendar and the use of a new data processing system. These changes produced some confusion before the process was debugged. Although some of the resulting data (especially for 1966-67) are incomplete and some in a form difficult to compare with earlier data, it is felt to be reliable within 5%. Tables of the findings show 1967-68 comparative data for LACC and other junior college transfers by number of entrants, GPA's at college and university, differentials in GPA's, number eligible and ineligible at high school graduation; a summary of data for the past 11 years; an analysis of transfers by campus to which they transferred; an analysis, by sex and college major, of transfers to the UCLA campus; and academic performance of transfers to UCLA by other selected categories. Among the nine conclusions is that, of all California junior college transfers to the university, those from LACC made an outstanding record. Thirty per cent made a B average or better; only 11% earned below a C. LACC transfers had a GPA of 2.65 at the university, .22 below their college average. The 3052 transfers from other colleges dropped their averages by .45. (HH)
