In 1989, a study was conducted of the performance of Redwood High School (RHS) graduates at the College of the Sequoias (COS), in California. The study analyzed information provided by the high school and data available from COS's student information system, including RHS grade point average (GPA), college GPA, units attempted and passed, first and last semesters of enrollment, enrollment status (i.e., current or not current), associate degree awarded, and semester that the degree was granted. Separate analyses were completed for the graduates of 1986, 1987, and 1988. Study findings included the following: (1) 63.9% of the RHS 1986 graduates were served in some capacity by COS, compared to 68.3% of the 1987 graduates and 63.0% of the 1988 graduates; (2) 25% of the 1986 graduates, 50.2% of the 1987 graduates, and 67.3% of the 1988 graduates who attended COS completed the spring 1989 semester; (3) 17% of the 1986 graduates and 9.2% of the 1987 graduates received an associate degree from COS; (4) high school GPA was 2.781 for the 1986 graduates, 2.844 for the 1987 graduates, and 2.653 for the 1988 graduates; and (5) the average college GPA was 2.538 for the 1986 graduates, 2.428 for the 1987 graduates, and 2.558 for the 1988 graduates.
