Making It Count: A Report on a Project to Provide Better Financial Aid Information to Students.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY. Coll. Scholarship Service.
The data presented represent the current status of an ongoing project to develop, test, implement, and evaluate a wide range of new and different ways to providing information to students about costs and aid. The data, examples, and recommendations reflect the state of the art in better information for student choice in December 1976. The report summarizes the findings of 18 months of study, discussion, review, and information development. It attempts to document the need for better information, to identify reasons why the need for better information exists, to posit an ideal scene, and to make recommendations for redress of the situation. Some examples of improved information materials developed by the participating institutions in the course of the project are illustrated at the end of the report. Consideration is given to the "information gap," college plans of the respondents, the importance of costs and aid, and the nontraditional student. Characteristics of the Financial Aid Information Model are described, and the survey questionnaire is included. (LBH)
