Summary

This study analyzes Los Angeles City College (LACC) records for a six-semester period of students who took the Guidance Examination in fall 1970 and scored in the lowest quintile on both the vocabulary and reading sections of the examination. This score indicated that their reading level was at the eighth-grade level or lower. The students were sent postcards recommending that they enroll in Developmental Communications on the basis of their examination score. Persistence rates and academic statistics indicated that many of these students were assisted by the "remedial" programs and were successful in college. Five tables and two figures provide the study data. (DB)
