Summary

This report summarizes and assesses secular and scholastic characteristics of students new to higher education. The report includes a review of the lieterature from 1960 through 1971 in an attempt to offer suggestions for new educational programs, services, tactics, further research, and educational models sensitive to the needs of new students. Reviewing the scholastic or cognitive attributes of new students, the report considers the following dimensions: academic skills, study skills, coping behavior, background data, and intellectual functioning. The report then considers the following noncognitive variables: deferment of gratification, economic factors, motivation and aspiration, locus of control, self-concept, and social influences. The report categorizes the data by ethnic groups and sex, and suggests curricular implications and recommendations. (Author/LAA)
