Annotation

This reader outlines a number of higher education studies, surveys, and findings from the early and mid-1900s. Organized in three sections, the first part looks at achievements during college (focusing on undergraduates) with the second part giving a review of alumni achievements. The former includes findings from state-wide (The Pennsylvania Study) and national surveys (GRE results, general education, CLEP). Alumni surveys include institutional, state, and national findings. Further, survey results from liberal arts colleges are utilized. The section ends by comparing all studies noted as well as alumni surveys on their future. The last section gives a brief overview of institutions, with one chapter focused on self-studies and another chapter on comparing cross-institutional and inter- institutional studies.
