A Five Year Follow-up Study of Entering Fall 1970 Basic Skills Students at Queensborough Community College.
Bergman, Irwin
In order to ascertain the effect of open admissions by investigating the graduation rate of basic skills students, a follow-up study was conducted of the 1,728 students who entered Queensborough Community College in fall 1970 and who were assigned to remedial reading and/or writing. Of a total enrollment of 3,230, 24% or 774 students were graduated by August 1975; of these, 334 (43.2%) were basic skills students. Approximately 50% of the 334 were graduated at the end of 2.5 years and 86.2% were graduated at the end of three years, as compared to 87.9% of the non-basic skills graduates. In the basic skills group, 44.7% received the Associate of Arts degree, 46.8% the Associate of Applied Sciences, and 8.4% the Associate in Science. Of all the graduates, 25.l% were basic skills students with high school averages below 75; 20.7% were non-basic skills students with high school averages below 75; 16.4% were basic skills students with high school averages above 75; and 37.7% were non-basic skills students with high school averages above 75.
