College of Liberal Arts Grades for Students Enrolled in the Martin Luther King Program at the University of Minnesota: Fall Quarter, 1970, through Summer Session II, 1972.
Hendel, Darwin D.
Previous reports from the office for student affairs at the University of Minnesota have contained a review of the literature on programs for high risk students, a description of the overall progress of students in the Martin Luther King (MLK) program, and a description of MLK students academic records. The present report continues this series and focuses on the courses MLK students have taken in the college of liberal arts (CLA) from the fall 1970 through the summer 1972. The purposes of the report are the following: (1) to describe the academic records of MLK students in CLA courses, and (2) to compare CLA grade point averages for various subgroups of students. These analyses were based on transcripts of 650 MLK students. A total of 1,015 different CLA courses were taken by the MLK students during that period of time. However, 104 of the courses had more than 10 MLK students registered during the period; of the courses, mean course grade point was "C" or higher in over 94% of the courses. The analysis of individual grade point averages across courses did not yield any significant subgroup (college of entrance, year of entrance, status at entrance, ethnic group, sex, age at entrance) differences.
