Graham, Steve; Donaldson, Joe F.
Adult Education Quarterly, v49 n3 p147-61 Spr 1999
ACT College Outcomes Survey data were collected from 27,811 students (63% aged 20-22, 37% over 26). Older students were much less involved in campus activities and more in family responsibilities. Adults reported higher levels of academic and intellectual growth in terms of broadening interests, critical thinking, study skills, career development, and understanding of science and technology.
