Academic Advising for College and Beyond.
Frost, Susan H.
A research project presented at a workshop on academic advising on college campuses is briefly described, and the attitudes and practices of academic advisors from two campuses, obtained through an academic advisor survey, are presented. The project investigated the relationship between developmental academic advising and the cognitive growth of college freshmen. Unusually high levels of developmental advising found at two private liberal arts women's colleges prompted the development of the academic advisor survey; the survey's results are meant to help in the creation of a training componet to advisors from other campuses. The survey sought advisor attitudes and practices in 12 areas of academic advising. Through factor analysis, items on the survey were broken down into three subscales and are described as: (1) areas of academic concern; (2) areas of personal concern; and (3) maintenance concerns. Items listed under each subscale are arranged in order of importance as viewed by the advisors surveyed. Contains 20 references. (GLR)
