The Marshall-University High School Early Graduation Program.
Gray, V. Katherine
The internal evaluator hired to study the early graduation program at Marshall-University High School was assigned three specific tasks: to determine the level of satisfaction of those students who have, from the time of the program's formal inception in 1970-71, opted for early graduation (that is, graduation before June of their twelfth year); to compare the level of satisfaction of students presently undertaking the early graduation option with that of students who had undertaken that option in the previous four years; and to determine if any trends had developed in the program that should be dealt with by the Southeast Alternatives decision-makers. Several methods were used to gather data. Questionnaires were sent to former students who had graduated early; and interviews were conducted with students who were planning to graduate early during the current year, with students who had accumulated enough credits to graduate early but who nevertheless elected to stay in school, and with four teachers who were familiar with many of the present and past early graduates. The data is compared and the major findings are summarized. Appendices contain the interview and survey instruments. (Author/IRT)
