Class of 1975: Selected Student Characteristics From a Predominately Black College.
Williams, James W.; Bunner, Gary N.
This study of characteristics of black students from predominately black colleges asks: What are the grade-point averages of all students by department? What are the scores on national tests by department, sex, transfer vs. nontransfer and overall? What are the number of semester hours completed for each student by department and how did it compare with the minimum requirements? What, if any, relationship exists between some of the selected variables? Conclusions drawn from the data are: (1) students with higher ACT scores tend to achieve higher NTE scores; (2) students with higher GPA's tend to achieve higher NTE scores; (3) the mean number of hours for graduation appears to be high in some areas; (4) a high percentage of graduates attended one or more summer school sessions; (5) transfer students tend to take more hours; and (6) most departmental minimum hourly requirements exceed the institutional minimum of 124.
