A One-Year Follow-Up Study of the Thirty-Seven Graduates Class of 1972 of the Jackson County Adult Evening High School Completion Program.
Gran, James R.
A one-year followup study of the graduates of the Jackson County Adult Evening High School Completion Program was conducted. Thirty-seven mail questionnaires were sent, and followup requests were mailed to non-respondents. A total of 34 (91.89%) graduates responded. Among the conclusions reached are the following: (1) ages ranged from 18 to 51, with an average of 29; (2) the vast majority remain in the same geographical area, at least for one year after graduation; (3) nearly half experienced a job change or promotion; 62% of those reported that it was directly or indirectly related to the adult program; (4) more than half reported benefits other than financial ones: (5) nearly all would recommend the program to other non-graduates; (6) all but four felt the amount of work required for graduation was about the right amount; (7) all rated the quality of instruction as good or better; and (8) nearly half indicated that all required and elective subjects were helpful. Recommendations on the basis of this and earlier one- and four-year followup studies are made. The questionnaire and cover letters are appended. (KM)
