A Comparison of Transfer Students and Incoming Freshmen Who Entered the University of Maryland, College Park, in Fall, 1975. Research Report #12-77.
Feldman, Jeffrey; And Others
Responses of a sample of 1533 incoming freshmen and 310 transfer students who entered the University of Maryland, College Park, in Fall 1975 were compared on a number of demographic and attitudinal items. Results showed that transfer students and incoming freshmen were more similar than different on the items compared. Differences were found in marital status, income from part-time jobs, grades reported from previous schools, place of residence, and students' perceptions of what had contributed most to their own development during the previous year. Statistical data from responses to survey questions and a bibliography are appended. (Author/LBH)
