Reading Preferences, Skills and Habits of Harcum Junior College and City University of New York Community College Students.
Blai, Boris, Jr.
An anonymous questionnaire was circulated among Harcum Junior College female students and students at six community colleges of the City University of New York (CUNY) in order to obtain answers to the following questions: (1) What do Harcum students read? (2) How well do they read? (3) What are their reading preferences? (4) What are their self-evaluated reading habits and skills? and (5) How do these compare with the skills and preferences of a sample of community college students? Responses of 594 Harcum students and 492 CUNY students, male and female, were summarized and compared. The most striking statistically-revealed finding was the consistently high degree of similarity in the self-evaluated reading preferences, skills, and habits of the student groups. The Harcum Reading Development Program is evaluated in RE 003 453. Tables and references are included. (DH)
