The Study of Junior Colleges. Volume III, Measuring the Dimensions of Community Colleges.
Bradford, Clarence; And Others
The final volume of The Study of Junior Colleges contains the measurements and instrumentation derived from the project for future evaluation surveys. Part One, Prediction of Student Outcomes: Multivariate Analysis of the Survey Data, provides: an introduction to the analyses; data reduction, factors, and scales; students' objectives and enrollment status; students' achievements and attitudes toward their education; student ratings, backgrounds, and program emphases; and freshmen-sophomore differences as estimates of persistence. Part Two provides a critique of the survey questionnaire items, and Part Three provides prototypic items for future junior college surveys--items for student, faculty, and counselor questionnaires. Frequency distributions and other statistical data are provided in tables. (For related documents, see JC 730 146-148.) (KM)
