An Exploratory Study of the College for High School Program of the Extramural Independent Study Center of the University of Kansas.
McCoy, Vivian Rogers
The experience of 37 students enrolled in a program to earn college credit while at high school through independent, correspondence study was examined. Two questionnaires, one for students and the other for their sponsoring principals and counselors, were mailed to 37 students and 39 counselors and principals to determine their evaluation of the program, opinions about appropriate admissions requirements, motivation, grades earned in the next college courses for which the program prepared the students, and other factors. All but one of the counselors and principals responded, and 29 students responded. Relevant data from Center files were analyzed as well as questionnaire responses. Among the results were the following: (1) students were primarily college-bound; (2) approximately 35 percent completed the course; (3) most principals and counselors favored dropping the requirements of placement in the upper half of the class and GPA of B+ or above favored retaining principal or counselor recommendation; (4) most completers took the course on an overload basis with no specially assigned study area, and the noncompleters reported the best school support.
