Systemwide Student Tracking and Retention Programs. A Special Seminar.
Berrian, Albert H., Ed.; Bonas, John E., Ed.
Presentations at a seminar on systemwide tracking that grew out of efforts to promote implementation of South Carolina's desegregation plan are included. Two subjects were the focus: retention and the use of monitored developmental programs as a means of retention and of safeguarding quality. Essays include "Systemwide Student Tracking" (Delores Auzenne), which gives background on the use of tracking programs and procedures in the Florida system; "Statewide Student Tracking" (Larry Hayes), on the objectives and current status of tracking in Oklahoma; "Improving Desegregation Planning and Higher Education in Tennessee: Student Information System (SIS), Retention and Progression" (Michael Nettles), focusing on student data needs; "Retention and Tracking: The Role of Faculty" (Marie Jean Lederman) in the City University of New York system; "Retention: A Follow-Up Study of Entering Freshmen at the City University of New York" (Michael Ribaudo), which discusses a recently-undertaken tracking study of 33,000 students; and "ACT 101: The State of Pennsylvania Higher Education Program for Disadvantaged Students" (Conrad Jones) outlining a successful 10-year-old program, its evolution and evaluation.
