The Administration and Evaluation of Open Admissions at the City University of New York.
Professional Staff Congress of the City Univ. of New York, NY.
The Professional Staff Congress of the City University of New York (CUNY) presents in this document a critique of the open admissions policy at CUNY. If open admissions students were given a reasonable opportunity for collegiate success, then retention rates would lose much of their significance in evaluating the programs at the CUNY. But remediation has not been adequately administered, class size limitations have not been honored, the University's academic support program in the form of curricular research and professional training is still being developed, and the assessment of outcomes has been meager and simplistic. All that is on the public record is a misleading picture of retention that generates expectations among the students and the public. The authors conclude that CUNY has mismanaged the open admissions program and has covered up this mismanagement with misinformation. Appendices include newspaper reports, letters concerning class size and the commitment of the Congress to open admissions. (Author/PG)
