Hollins, Carol S.; Smith, Myra Goodman
Grade distributions were determined for 188 students enrolled at John Tyler Community College (JTCC) in fall 1985, who completed high school in spring 1985. Analyses, which focused on high school attended, courses for which grades were recorded, and status and curriculum of the students, revealed the following: (1) over one-half of all grades received were passing, representing a slight improvement over the grades of first-time students in 1984; (2) almost one-fourth of the grades were recorded in developmental English, reading, and mathematics; (3) of the first-time students enrolled in developmental courses, 50% were given satisfactory ratings, 41% were designated to re-enroll to complete course requirements, 5% received unsatisfactory ratings, and 3% withdrew from developmental classes; (4) the largest number of failing grades were recorded in business administration, accounting, data processing, English, and secretarial science; and (5) 100% passing grades were recorded in air conditioning, architecture, arts, electronics, engineering, French, funeral services, German, natural sciences, Spanish, and word processing. Data are presented by high school of attendance. (EJV)
