Fall 1975 Entering Students Continuing in the Same Community College in Spring 1976; Hawaii, Honolulu, Maui, and Windward Community Colleges. Student Flow Project, Report No. 5.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
As a part of a longitudinal study of student progress through the Hawaii community colleges, four campuses--Hawaii, Honolulu, Maui, and Windward--participated in a study of fall 1975 entering students continuing in the same college in spring 1976. The fall 1975 entering group numbered 3,924. Of the 2,790 who returned in the spring, 2,104 (75.4 percent) returned a survey administered at registration. Most students at Hawaii, Maui, and Windward listed "close and convenient" as the chief reason for college selection, but availability of a desired program also attracted students to Honolulu Community College. About 90 percent of the students said that they planned to continue their educations in fall 1976--most of them by returning to their present campus. The students considered only eight of the 16 student goals listed on the survey form as being important to them, and rated these eight according to the degree to which their expectations had been fulfilled. Students evaluated their community college experience by reacting to 11 items; on all four campuses, instructors' backgrounds and helpfulness received the best average ratings. Observations are made on the characteristics of the various campuses with regard to both their programs and student populations. Data are tabulated throughout, and the survey instrument is appended.
