The Effects of Prescribed Testing and Personalized Counseling on Enrollment, Attrition, and Success of New Students Enrolled in Reading Courses at Sacramento City College.
Bohr, Dorothy H.; And Others
This study is aimed at determining whether personalized pre-enrollment counseling based on the results of a standardized English skills test has a positive effect on new student enrollment, attrition (withdrawal), and success in reading skills courses. By comparing pertinent data for spring 1972 students who were not counseled with data for counseled students in spring 1973, it was found that counseled students had a lower attrition rate than other students in the reading skills classes. Counseling did not tend to increase the rate of enrollment in reading skills courses, nor did counseled reading skills students experience a higher rate of success. (MJK)
