Comparison of Fall 1973 University of Maryland Baltimore County Freshmen to the Freshmen National Norms on the A.C.E. Student Information Form.
Wright, William A.
Data were collected from the American Council on Education's Cooperative Research Program Student Information Form, which, since 1966, has been gathering longitudinal information on students at a national sample of colleges and universities. The University of Maryland Baltimore County participated in this program for the first time in 1973. This comparative report describes the differences between the UMBC entering freshmen on the following variables: demographic characteristics, high school academic achievement, career plans, attitudes and life goals. Significant differences in career plans and academic achievement are attributed to the socioeconomic composition of the entering class at UMBC. Similarities in attitudes and life goals to the national norms are attributed to pervasive acculturation effects of the mass media. (Author)
