An Analysis of the Academic Performance of Crowder College Transfer Students at Southwest Missouri State University. Institutional Research Report 2-74.
Schade, Herbert C.
In order to examine the academic performance of graduates from Crowder College (Neosho, Missouri) who had transferred to Southwest Missouri State University (SMSU), the grade point averages of three different groups of SMSU students were compared: (1) Crowder College transfers; (2) their undergraduate contemporaries at SMSU; (3) the entire group of Missouri community college transfer students enrolled at SMSU. In addition, direct comparisons were made between the cumulative grade point averages students had earned at Crowder, and the cumulative grade point averages they earned at SMSU. There was no significant difference between the Crowder graduates and the graduates from other Missouri community colleges in terms of distributions among the five grade point average categories at SMSU. There was no significant difference in 10 out of 12 college class-sex subgroups when Crowder graduates were compared with all SMSU undergraduate students. There was no significant difference observed for any group in comparing the cumulative Crowder College grade point average with the SMSU cumulative grade point average. Data are organized into tables, and a detailed description of the various statistical tests applied to the data is provided. (Author/NHM)
