Manning, Winton H.; And Others
The selective admissions issue in higher education is examined in this book from three perspectives. Part One on public policy and academic policy includes comments and recommendations by the Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in Higher Education. A report by Winton H. Manning in Part Two deals with fairness, including: the role of values in pursuing fairness in admissions; institutions and individuals in the admission process; arguments for consideration of race in admissions policies; educational due process in admissions; a two-stage model of the admissions process; special programs; and decision strategies. In Part Three the status of selective admissions is examined by Warren W. Willingham and Hunter M. Breland in association with Richard I. Ferrin and Mary Fruen. It covers: selective undergraduate admissions; admissions to graduate schools of arts and sciences, law schools, medical schools, and management schools; and use and limitations of selection measures. Appended are statistical data and data on student performance on selective measures. An eight-page bibliography is included. (LBH)
