"Success" of "Calculated Risk" Students at Harcum Junior College.
Blai, Boris, Jr.
Studies of "calculated-risk" students at Harcum Junior College conflict with reports conducted elsewhere. The first report concluded that a small percentage of calculated-risk students persist through their freshman year. A more recent study (Harcum Junior College) found that 87 per cent of the students observed were making satisfactory progress toward graduation. Still a third (the most recent) study found that a substantial number of academic-risk students persist through graduation at Harcum Junior College. On the findings of the two Harcum studies, it was concluded that selected admission of calculated-risk students should continue in future admissions to Harcum. (Author/RC)
