An Analytical Model for Extending the Concept of Environmental Cause from a Sample Population to a Universe of Community College Students.
Landini, Albert J.
Diminishing financial resources have decreased the availability of individual counseling and instructional services. It therefore becomes more critical to accurately identify those students most likely to need specialized treatment. The model presented here is designed to extend various socio-psychological concepts based on environmental cause from a sample population to a universe of community college students. The sample hypothesis presented was that socio-economic and demographic characteristics associated with the census block in which a student's home address is located would be reflected in his classification score from a test instrument. The steps used in the procedure are described, including data collection and computer use for data manipulation and classification. It was concluded that a universal classification scheme based on cultural variables could provide a means by which community college dropout rates might be reduced. (RN)
