An Evaluation of Extended Opportunity Services (SB164) at Santa Barbara City College, Fall Semester, 1970.
MacMillan, Thomas F.
This report offers an objective analysis of persistence, performance, and costs of the Extended Opportunity Services Program for minority and low-income students at Santa Barbara Community College during the fall 1970 semester. The program includes tutorial services, recruiting and special counseling, and direct student financial aid from state (Senate Bill 164) and federal sources. The research topics that formed the basis for evaluation of 152 students were: units completed by tutored students; grade point average for tutored students; measured ability of tutored students as reflected by SCAT test scores; compared performance of tutored vs. non-tutored students in English 42 and Math 1; performance of tutored students, cross-tabulated by race; and performance of students receiving financial aid from Senate Bill 164 funds only. The value of this program cannot be determined entirely on an objective basis and the author, therefore, includes a statement of SBCC's concerns as an institution. (CA)
