An Analysis of Female Enrollment and Persistence in Five Selected Industry and Technology Courses.
Garlock, Jerry C.
An investigation was made to determine the number of female students who completed or withdrew from five industry and technology courses predominantly enrolled by male students, over an 11 year period from 1964 to 1974. A total of 59 females had enrolled in Auto Mechanics, while 9, 8, and 5 females had enrolled in Welding, Construction Technology, and Air Conditioning and Refrigeration, respectively. No females had enrolled in Auto Body and Fender. The last three years of the study indicate a completion percent of 56, 52, and 50. The percent of those completing courses for all years studied was 53. The course having the highest percent of female enrollees completing the course was Welding, with a completion rate of 67 percent. This course was followed by Auto Mechanics (54 percent), Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (40 percent), and Construction Technology (38 percent). Three tables are appended. (NHM)
