Fall 1975 Entering Students in Spring 1976; A Comparison of Continuing and Non-Continuing Students at the Beginning of Their Second Semester. Student Flow Project, Report No. 10.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
As part of a longitudinal study examining student progress through the Hawaii community colleges, this study examines the characteristics of 8,979 students who entered the community colleges in fall 1975 and compares the student profiles of the 6,503 who enrolled in spring 1976 with the 2,476 who discontinued their enrollment. The study is based on information in student files and on responses of students to an evaluation survey of their first semester. Major findings are presented in three sections: (1) comparison of all continuing and non-continuing students, by campus, as to age, sex, marital status, high school background, entry status, grade point average, full- or part-time status, program, and credit completion ratio; (2) comparison of all continuing and non-continuing students, by campus and program (liberal arts, business, health services, hotel/food services, public services, or technology) as to age, sex, marital status, entry status, full- or part-time status, grade point average, and credit completion ratio; (3) comparison of continuing and non-continuing survey respondents at Hawaii, Honolulu, Maui, and Windward campuses as to goals they considered important, average degree of fulfillment of expectations, and evaluations of their community college experiences. Pertinent data are tabulated and graphed and detailed tables are appended. (NHM)
