The Two-Year and Four-Year Institution: Some Selected Factors Associated with Academic Performance.
Brimm, Jack
One hundred and ninety-five subjects, undergraduates who began their college careers in a large state university and subsequently transferred to community colleges, were studied in relation to factors associated with academic performance. A questionnaire was developed based on data obtained from interview sessions with students enrolled at the university and the two-year college and from literature reporting prior research. Results indicated that there appeared to be a positive relationship between institutional environment and academic achievement, although it was difficult for the investigators to discern the more important institutional characteristics relative to academic performance. Factors associated with both academic success and failure are indicated for both the large university and the community college. (Author/MJM)
