Academic Performance of the "Persistent Probationer" College Student.
Arnold, Gretchen B.; Planisek, R. J.
The purpose of this study was to provide information concerning the academic performance of students who were permitted to continue on probation while hovering slightly below university requirements. The sample consisted of 212 academically dismissed students who were readmitted to the College of Education at Kent State University. The results show that the persistent probationer tends to be on probation longer than the mean number of quarters before dismissal (2.2 quarters) and after readmission (1.9 quarters). He tends to be an upperclassman, to earn a cummulative GPA higher than the mean for the sample, and he tends to graduate. Using graduation as the major factor of success for readmission, the results imply that the persistent probationer has a tendency to be a successful readmitted student. (Author/AF)
