An Economic Analysis of College Admission Standards.
Costrell, Robert M.
Education Economics, v1 n3 p227-41 1993
The effects of relaxed college admission standards vary across students. A relaxed standard may raise the number of graduates but reduces nongraduates' productivity. The effect on the graduation rate is ambiguous, since "marginal" college attendees are less likely to graduate. A lower admission standard reduces performance among students exceeding the graduation standard by impairing their preparation for college work. (MLH)
