An Assessment of British Columbia's Post-Secondary Education Transfer Issues: The Student Perspective.
This report assesses transfer issues from the student perspective in British Columbia. It centers on determining: where transfer students went for further studies; the nature of the transfer-related problems that were encountered; and the frequency these transfer-related problems were cited. The following five sub-cohort pairings, defined within each of the two major program type cohorts, were analyzed in order to discover significant differences in transfer-related behavior and experience: (1) comparing lower division Arts and Sciences students who continued studies with those who did not; (2) for students who continued studies, comparing students who attempted to transfer credits with those who did not; (3) for students who continued studies and attempted to transfer credits, comparing students who encountered transfer problems with those who did not; (4) for students who continued studies, attempted to transfer credits, and encountered transfer problems, comparing students who attempted to transfer the original credential (or all completed course-work) as one whole block of credits towards their new program with those who did not; and (5) for students who continued studies, attempted to transfer credits, and encountered transfer problems, comparing students who encountered transfer problems only at the old institution (sending) with those who encountered transfer problems at the new institution (receiving). It presents key findings and recommendations. The paper includes the questionnaire instrument in appendices. (Contains 14 references.) (VWC)
