Institutional Research, Fiscal Year 1979: The Students. Research Monographs III, V, VI, XI, XII, and XIII.
South Oklahoma City Junior Coll., OK.
During fiscal year (FY) 1979, six institutional research reports were conducted at South Oklahoma City Junior College (SOCJC) that focused on various aspects of the student population. The first study in this compilation determined selected characteristics (sex, full/part-time status, marital status, age, ethnic background, and program) of the 5,285 students enrolled at SOCJC during fall 1978 for whom this information was available. Two reports represent part of a larger retention study. One tried to determine why 2,472 of 5,412 students enrolled in fall 1978 did not return in spring 1979 and the characteristics of this group. The second phase of the retention study looked at the 360 non-returning students who officially withdrew with regard to their majors, goals, and characteristics. Another study compared spring 1979 and FY 1979 enrollments with those from previous years in terms of headcount and credit hours and selected student characteristics. A fifth study tried to identify differences in students who took classes at different times of the day. The final report presents the findings of a survey of SOCJC 1978 graduates, that solicited information on their current activities and their satisfaction with various aspects of their college experience. The survey questions are included with the responses. (AYC)
