University Without Walls: Student Profile.
Kinsel, John B; Latham, Jefferson M.
The preceding report provides a limited view of 60 percent of the initial group of students in the Hofstra University Without Walls (UWW) program. Results from the two tests and the Background Questionnaire suggest that these students, in spite of their average age, are not significantly different from the average New College entering freshman in political/social background and intellectual characteristics. They do differ in terms of their life experiences, employment background, apparent social maturity, and reading skills. These conclusions must be viewed extremely cautiously because of the limited sample of UWW students and lack of statistical verification, i.e., the similarities and differences noted are primarily judgmental based upon a review of the above results by the investigators.
