Impact of the Thirteen College Curriculum Program on Graduating Seniors: Motivational and Attitudinal Factors.
Parmeter, J. Thomas
This document reports on some student impact results of the Thirteen College Curriculum Program (TCCP). The TCCP is a major effort in intervention and reform in the higher education of black Americans generated in predominantly black colleges. The goals were to reduce attrition rates by improving the quality of instruction at freshman and sophomore levels of college. The initial efforts and the kinds of results here are responsible for the fact that 41 schools have now been involved in trying to replicate these initial findings in a much larger group of institutions. In the body of the report the findings in each area are first presented as a composite picture, followed by a discussion of the comparative differences between the three previously identified groups of seniors. In general, the study reports the positive outcomes of the TCCP. It implies that long-range gains can be made by black students who are in an innovative curriculum intervention program during their freshman year. Indirectly, the results of the study indicate the positive outcomes of ISE's recurring summer and winter faculty development efforts with freshman instructors on student growth and development.
