A Study of the Subsequent Educational Achievement of Students Taking Guided Studies Courses.
Hendrix, Vernon L.
This study reports the subsequent achievement of junior college students taking guided studies courses. Relationships between ACT scores, grades earned in guided studies courses, and subsequent success in college courses were examined. English 101, Communications 131, and Social Science 131 were selected as criterion courses, but the lack of adequate criterion measures made it difficult to draw firm conclusions. With certain courses, a relationship exists between grades earned in guided studies courses, ACT scores, and subsequent success in college. The salvage rate for guided studies courses appears to be low. This study suggests the need for specifically defined course goals, evaluation in terms of these goals, and replication of this study.
