Florida Public High School Class of 1993-94.
This report presents the results of a longitudinal study of 1993-94 graduates of Florida's public high schools who enrolled in the Florida Community College System (FCCS) between fall 1994 and spring 1999. The study focused on three questions: (1) how many members of the class of 1993-94 were enrolled in the FCCS from 1994 to 1999? (2) What did the students want to achieve? and (3) What was the relationship between student intent and awards earned? The total enrollment of 1993-94 graduates during the 5-year period was 46,773. Enrollment ranged from a high of 31,331 in 1994-95 to 14,277 in 1998-99. Of the total enrollment, 69.7 percent of students wanted to earn an Associate of Arts (AA) degree at some point, 18.5 percent wanted to earn an Associate of Science (AS) degree, 4.8 percent sought a vocational certificate, and 1.3 percent a credit certificate. Students earning an AA degree changed their intent less often than those earning an AS or certificate did. Four tables include: (1) public high school class of 1993-94 attendance in FCCS by program intent and award earned; (2) student intent by award received for AA, AS, credit certificate, and vocational certificate; and (3) award earned by award intent.
