Review of Higher Education for the Disadvantaged.
Melnick, Murray
In this essay on higher education for the disadvantaged, the author discusses the definition of "disadvantaged," assessment procedures of disadvantaged students, and the predictive value of aptitude tests. The author concludes that more and better controlled studies are needed, preferably longitudinal, and offering clear information on the extent of remediation employed and the nature of actual curriculum standards. Without much detail, it appears that the disadvantaged are doing, on the average, C or C- work. (Author/JW)
