Evaluation of a College Curriculum Advisory Program Utilizing Student Advisors. Final Report.
Brown, Coke R.
This study was designed to evaluate the viability of using students as academic advisors for freshmen students and to document the process of the advising program at Idaho State University. Results show that students advised by students did as well academically and had a lower dropout rate than students advised by faculty. Descriptions of advisor behaviors and characteristics did not add appreciably to prediction of academic achievement but did predict the students' attitudes toward their advisors. The most outstanding characteristic of the program was the lack of utilization of the advising system by students and the variability in the application of the system. Recommendations for improving the Idaho State University advising system are included. (Author/HS)
