Fall 1979 Entering Students at the Beginning of Their Second Semester (Spring 1980). Student Flow Program, Report 5.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Kapiolani Community Coll.
As part of a student flow project designed to monitor students who entered Kapiolani Community College in Fall 1979 for five successive semesters, this report summarizes data indicative of the students' academic progress and status as of the beginning of Spring 1980. The report first looks at selected characteristics of new and transfer students, including major, sex, academic status (passing or probationary), and financial aid classification; and at the English and mathematics placement test scores of new students. The report goes on to examine: (1) Spring 1980 registration rates by comparing the number of Spring 1980 registrants with the total number of Fall 1979 entering students who had not completed their degree; (2) the number of students who registered on a full-time basis; (3) the number of credits attempted and earned during Fall 1979; (4) the number of students who changed their majors during Fall 1979 and the changes they made; and (5) the number of students who graduated at the end of Fall 1979. Major findings indicate that 69% of the students entering in Fall 1979 re-enrolled in Spring 1980 and that approximately 66% enrolled full-time. The average credit hours attempted were 10.0, and the average credit-completion ratio was 68%. Only 6% of the students changed their major during the semester. (JP)
