The American Freshman: National Norms for Fall 1973.
Astin, Alexander W.; And Others
This is the eighth annual report of national normative data on characteristics of students entering college as first-time, fulltime freshmen. Data are based on responses from 189,733 freshmen entering 360 institutions to the Student Information Form (SIF), the survey instrument. The SIF is designed to elicit a wide range of biographic and demographic data, as well as data on the student's high school background, career plans, educational aspirations, financial arrangements, high school activities, and current attitudes. National norms are categorized according to type of institution and type of control for: men, women, and all freshmen; universities by selectivity level, by sex; 4-year colleges by selectivity level; and geographic region, by sex. Appendices give institutions participating in the ACE/UCLA cooperative institutional research program and the 1973 Student Information Form. (MJM)
