Needed Research Concerning the Community College Student.
Koos, Leonard V.
As a result of compiling a recent comprehensive review of information on community college students, the author of this paper identifies areas where further research is needed. First, community colleges should be acquainted with who is not attending college. Knowledge of the needs and interests of potential students is necessary for program planning and for estimates of future enrollment. A second area of major importance for research concerns the impact of the community college on its students. Here, longitudinal studies of student attitudes, values and maturation levels are needed. The third area is the recreational activities and interests of community college students and of later adolescents generally; this would include all leisure time activities such as television viewing and reading habits. Lastly, research is needed to cast light on the "linkages" between high schools and community colleges such as coordinated guidance and testing programs, and the impact of these linkage arrangements on students.
