A Report on the Survey of High School Students' Educational Plans and Opinions Relating to the Area Two-Year Institutions.
Roesler, Elmo V., Ed.
A survey of high school juniors and seniors in areas served by members of the Appalachian Developing Institutions Consortium was conducted to: (1) discover the kind of image each consortium institution had with these students; and (2) obtain information on these students' backgrounds and educational plans to assist administrations in establishing productive communication, to aid in recruitment and program planning, and to increase the accuracy of enrollment predictions and estimates of space needs. Questionnaires were administered to more than 12,300 students. A ten percent random sample was used for analysis. Consortium findings and conclusions for each item on the questionnaire are included. Criticism (by the research coordinators) of the strengths and weaknesses of the study's design and administration and the exclusion or modification of questions is provided. Tables of the data collected are presented in Appendix A. Appendix B is a copy of the questionnaire. (KM)
