Student Articulation between Selected Public High Schools and the Public Colleges and Universities in Texas.
Lazenby, Roy L.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of high school counselors and college and university representatives as perceived by college freshmen. A further purpose was to determine if significant differences existed in the perception of student articulation problems by high school counselors, junior college admission officers, college and university admission officers, and college freshmen. Data gathered from 994 students at various Texas colleges, universities, and junior colleges showed that high school counselors are often unavailable to advise students, but that most students benefitted from what assistance they did receive. Many students reported nonbeneficial experiences with college representatives in the areas of "preparation to enter college" and"selection of college courses," but most students reported beneficial contact in all other areas. Perceptions of the relative importance of ten student articulation problems by college freshmen differed significantly from high school counselors' perceptions on six of ten items and from the perceptions of junior college and college admission officers on two of the ten items. There were no significant differences between the perceptions of high school counselors, junior college admission officers, and college and university admission officers. (Author/JG)
