The Salvage Function in the Junior College: Myths and Actualities.
Berry, Elizabeth
Reporting on 162 second-chance students, the investigator found that 36% succeeded in the junior college, that most of the successful ones did not come directly to the junior college after dismissal from the first institution, that high school class rank was the best single indicator of success of second-chance students, that the grade point average for the first semester at the junior college is the best single indicator of long-range success, that achievement test scores taken in high school have value for identification of the late bloomer, that over half the sample studied left at the end of the first semester, that the successful students attributed their success to the fact that they were now older, more mature, and knew what they wanted. The report recommends mandatory pre-admission counseling for all high-risk students (to include extensive testing), evaluation of student personnel programs, and more training for junior college counselors.
