A Comparison of Academic Status Statistics, Fall 1981 to Fall 1983. Report 83-3.
A comparison of the number and percent of students subject to academic dismissal, academic probation, progress probation, the dean's list (GPA 2.00), and the president's list (GPA 3.00) at College of the Sequoias was drawn for the years 1981, 1982, and 1983. Statistics showed the following changes: (1) the number of students dismissed due to poor academic standing had increased by 80%, from 94 (1.2% of all students) in fall 1981 to 169 (2.3% of all students) in fall 1983; (2) the number of students placed on academic probation increased by 20%, from 758 (9.9% of all students) to 911 (12.5% of all students); (3) the number of students on progress probation decreased by 31%, from 454 (5.9% of all students) in fall 1981 to 315 (4.3% of all students) in fall 1983; and (4) the percentage of students appointed to the deans list decreased from 18.3% to 16.1%, while the percentage of students appointed to the president's list increased from 13.6% to 13.7%. Policy and program changes related to the increases in the numbers of students in academic difficulty and the decreases in the numbers achieving scholastic honors included a new requirement for instructors to submit their attendance policies in writing, a state-mandated drop fee, a decrease in tutorial services, the elimination of learning skills classes, and more stringent policies regarding course withdrawals and grading.
