The 1962-67 College Study of San Diego Adult School Graduates.
Winslow, Jacqueline Lee
This study investigated numbers and percentages of San Diego Adult School graduates completing their first semester of college work during 1962-67, locations of colleges attended, numbers of students attending, grade point averages (GPA) and number of credit courses taken, and GPAs for graduates out of state, in California, in the San Diego area, or at San Diego Junior College. Adult School graduate records, and letters and transcripts from respondent colleges, yielded data on 433 graduates (largely males aged 18-25, and typically servicemen or veterans). These were among the findings: (1) graduates attending college in San Diego County (61%) did better than graduates elsewhere; (2) 82 students at 65 colleges in 24 other states, the District of Columbia, and Mexico had an average GPA of 1.85; those within the state, county, or San Diego Junior College had higher GPAs; (3) about 80% of the graduates succeeding in staying in college; (4) students over 21 did better than those under 21; (5) Adult School GPAs had surpassed previous high school GPAs; (6) graduates who had had high grades performed as well as regular day students with similar high school grades. Further in-depth research and followup studies were recommended. (ly)
