Ten of the eleven research monographs which embody the major institutional research thrust of South Oklahoma City Junior College (SOCJC) during 1975 are presented in this compilation. The first study considers the American College Testing Program scores of students entering SOCJC in Fall 1975 in relation to college choice, student characteristics, education information, high school background, and scores of previous classes. The second study compares Fall 1975 and Spring 1976 enrollments in various programs and instructional styles. The third study assesses the characteristics of students who did not complete the enrollment process, their reasons, and their attitudes. The fourth study, based on the responses of recent high school graduates attending SOCJC to questions on their feelings toward the school and its approach, can be compared with the results of a survey of high school graduates not attending SOCJC, the subject of the ninth study. The fifth report summarizes participants' evaluations of a management workshop. The sixth study compares enrollments at SOCJC with those at two other area junior colleges, while the seventh focuses on the effect of SOCJC preparation on the grade point averages of transfer students. The eighth report considers reasons students gave for skipping semesters between taking classes, while the final report, on the tutorial assistance program, looks at student achievement and persistence, and at teacher, student, and tutor attitudes toward the program.
