Transfer Rates: A Problematic Criterion for Measuring the Community College.
Townsend, Barbara K.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n117 p13-24 Spr 2002
States that disagreements over whom should be counted as a transfer student or potential transfer student render it almost impossible to determine a national rate of students transferring from community colleges to the four-year sector. Urges administrators to improve on tracking the various types of community college transfers in order to yield a more accurate picture of transfer rates. (Contains 24 references.) (AUTH/KP)
