The American College Student, 1982. National Norms for 1978 and 1980 College Freshmen Two and Four Years After Entering College.
Green, Kenneth C.; And Others
Results of the 1982 Cooperative Research Program follow-up survey of 1978 and 1980 college freshmen are presented. The Student Information Form was initially administered to students as freshmen, and the Follow-Up Survey was completed by respondents either 2 or 4 years after college entrance. Normative data are reported separately for men and women, and for eight institutional groups based on type (two-year, four-year, and university) and control (public, independent, Catholic, and Protestant). A brief narrative summary precedes the detailed statistical tables. Weighted national norms are presented on the following: highest degree working toward/held/planned; average undergraduate grade; intention to continue enrollment at current institution; changes in attendance (transfer, withdrawal, leave of absence); reasons for leaving the freshmen college; college experiences viewed as satisfactory; activities since entering school; abilities and skills acquired; plans for fall 1982; undergraduate major field; and reasons for choosing current major. Summary tables on 12-year trends in undergraduate retention and institutional retention rates are included, as is the questionnaire. (SW)
