Recruitment and retention of talented college students by Donald L Thistlethwaite( Book )

4 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A variety of recruiting, training, and environmental incentive factors were studied as they relate to college motivation among talented high school students and to scientific productivity and intellectual achievement after a student has entered college. For this purpose a followup study was made of a 10 percent random sample of high school graduates, selected from some 300,000 examinees who had made good scores on the national merit scholarship qualifying test while in high school. The sample, including those who enrolled in college and those who did not, was examined comparatively with respect to aspirations, backgrounds, aptitudes, and other personal characteristics. Comparisons were also made between those subjects who had received or had been offered scholarships and loans and those who had not. In addition, scales were constructed for assessing college environments and for defining variables for stimulating achievement in higher education. An interesting finding was that over 75 percent of that part of the sample who had not gone to college could have been recruited into college if earlier incentives had been provided before their negative decisions toward higher education were made. Results also showed that scholarships and loans can be a significant incentive in overcoming and extremely common reason for not going to college - financial difficulty. Methods were cited for college dropout prevention among able students. (Jh)
Effects of college upon student aspirations by Donald L Thistlethwaite( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major objectives were to identify the types of college environments which strengthen or weaken undergraduates' disposition to seek advanced training and to formulate steps which college administrators or faculties might take to encourage talented students. A panel of approximately 2,000 college students was surveyed at the beginning of college, at the end of the sophomore year, and again at the completion of college. Multiple regression equations were developed for predicting terminal dispositions to seek advanced graduate or professional training from eight precollege characteristics. Discrepancies between predicted and obtained criterion scores were used as indexes of changes in dispositions. These indexes were correlated with measures of college environments and reported experience during college. The following hypotheses were confirmed--(1) dispositions to seek advanced graduate training are strengthened by excellent teachers or role models in the student's major field of study, upper class student subcultures characterized by a strong press for intellectualism or large proportions of peers planning to seek advanced degrees, major field teachers who provide positive evaluations of the student's ability, honors programs or graduate-level courses as undergraduates, undergraduate participation in research projects, and social recognition or experience of winning honors or awards, and (2) dispositions to seek advance study were weakened by teachers who either demand strict compliance with course or curricular requirements or who stress the practical or vocational values of education, and student peer groups exercising strong press to participate in play or spectator activities.
