National Norms for Entering College Freshmen - Fall 1969.
Creager, John A.; And Others
National normative data on the characteristics of students entering colleges as first-time, full-time freshmen in 1969 are presented in this annual report, the fourth in a series developed as part of the Cooperative Institutional Research Program being conducted by the Office of Research of the American Council on Education. The program's major objective is to determine how students are affected by the colleges they attend. The survey instrument, the Student Information Form, is designed to elicit a wide range of biographic and demographic data, and expressions of career plans, student behaviors, and attitudes. The data for this report are based on 169,190 freshmen entering 270 institutions; they were gathered in the fall of 1969 after matriculation but before students had started classes. There are 40 pages of normative data: the first 24 report item data separately for men, women, and all students according to 13 normative institutional categories; the following eight pages show regional norms for men, women, and all students, and the last eight pages are similarly arranged for seven additional institutional categories. The publication of a special normative report concerning the trends on items common to the survey years is planned for 1970. (WM)
