Summary

A comparison was made among 640 high school seniors who requested that their Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) results be sent to Los Angeles Community College (LACC), national SAT results for college bound seniors reported by the College Board in 1977, and enrolled students at LACC, where applicable. These 640 seniors are termed LACC applicants, even though they did not necessarily attend the school. Minority groups made up 76% of the LACC applicants, 74% of LACC students, and l6% of the nationwide group. Median annual parental income for LACC applicants was $9,000, for LACC students $8,800, and for the national group $17,600. LACC applicants were significantly lower than the national group in terms of high school grades, number of years study of various subjects, and high school class rank. Test score means and standard deviations for the SAT verbal, SAT mathematics, SAT verbal sub-scores in reading comprehension and vocabulary, and the Test of Standard Written English (TSWE) indicated that LACC applicants ranked below the 20th percentile in each of these tests. A larger percentage of LACC applicants indicated two-year educational goals than the national group, but they were comparable in percentage aiming for a bachelor's degree. (LH)
