Wright College Student Profile (A Study of Student Enrollment and Characteristics).
Joshi, Vasant
This institutional self-study is based on data available for Wilbur Wright College from 1968 to 1974, and includes data pertaining to three areas: enrollment, the American College Testing (ACT) profile, and student characteristics. Enrollment data shows distributions under categories including: day and evening enrollments, withdrawal and retention, program area, class, adult education, grade distribution, age, and sex. Comparisons with enrollments of past years are provided, as well as with enrollments of other institutions. The ACT profile shows a declining academic standard of entering freshmen over the years, and a lower score for Wright as compared to the scores of all Illinois community colleges. However, the mean high school GPA of Wright students has increased over the years. Data are also provided on students' educational aspirations and proposed educational majors. Student characteristics selected for analysis from computer printouts of the student characteristics reports for Wright include: student load distributions, earned college credits, rank in high school graduating class, future plans, mobility patterns of transfers, programs of transfers, ethnic distribution, ages, student distribution within a 4-mile radius of the college. Data are organized into 36 tables and 29 figures. (NHM)
