The American Freshman: National Norms for Fall 1971.
American Council on Education, Washington, DC. Office of Research.
This report presents national normative data on characteristics of students entering colleges as first-time freshmen during the early part of the 1971-72 academic year. The major purpose of this ongoing longitudinal research program is to determine how students are affected by the colleges they attend. The data was collected by administering the 1971 Student Information Form (SIF) to freshmen during the first few weeks of school. The SIF is designed to elicit a wide range of biographic and demographic data, as well as data on the student's high school background, career plans, educational aspirations, financial arrangements, high school activities and behaviors, and current attitudes.
