Regional Campuses Early Admission Students Study.
Knight, William E.
In 1992, a study was conducted to ascertain the characteristics, performance, and persistence of high school students who enrolled at the two-year regional campuses of Kent State University. Specific data collected for the study included the number of semesters and credit hours completed, and the cumulative grade point averages (GPA's) of the students by campus and by initial semester enrolled. The study population consisted of 118 high school students who were admitted to the regional campuses and enrolled in courses from summer 1990 to fall 1991. The average American College Testing Program score, for students for whom it was available, was 26. Students averaged six hours of enrollment per semester (the equivalent of two courses) with a range from 2 to 30 hours completed. The students' mean GPA was 3.30, and GPA's ranged from a low of 0.23 to a high of 4.00, which was achieved by 36 students. There was considerable variability among the courses in which the students enrolled, with College English I, General Psychology, and American National Government being among the more popular courses. Two of the students who graduated from high school in 1991 subsequently enrolled as full-time students, a third was admitted for the fall, and a fourth was admitted, but did not enroll. Five of the students who will graduate from high school in 1992 were admitted for the fall at the time of the study. (JMC)
