Assessment of Job Placement Services in Colleges with Predominantly Black Students. Volume 1, Summary Volume.
Fisher, Franklin G., Jr.
A survey of 30 colleges, 15 with predominantly black students and 15 with predominantly white students, was conducted in 15 different states. The major objective of this study was to provide knowledge about the effectiveness of the placement process in a representative sample of four-year colleges with predominantly black student population and their white counterparts. The study identifies the formal system and informal network of placement activities as they occur at colleges and focuses on gathering data about the overall placement process, its function, its operation, and its effectiveness. In-person interviews were conducted at the selected colleges with college placement personnel, certain college administrators, certain faculty members, and graduating seniors. Questionnaires were mailed to certain 1974 graduates and employers who recruit at the selected colleges on a regular basis. The data collected was analyzed using SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). (Author)
