Summary

This study summarizes scholastic performance of Los Angeles City College (LACC) fall 1977 entering students according to last school attended prior to registering at LACC. Data were derived from a district computer center printout, "Grade Listing of Freshmen Fall 1977", which listed all students' names, units attempted and completed, grade points and grade point averages (GPA), grouped in terms of last school attended. The nearly 15,000 applicants included students from schools in 38 California counties, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and over 100 foreign countries. Only 48% of applicants completed work at LACC during fall 1977. The average student who finished some work, completed 7.5 units and had a semester GPA of 2.558. GPA of students from local "feeder" high schools ranged from 1.881 to 2.785; four schools averaged above 2.7, while the remaining schools showed GPA below the overall 2.558 average. Among students showing higher than average GPA were transfers from 13 local community colleges, three Southern California state universities, the University of California at Los Angeles, and the University of Southern California, students from 28 out of 34 states, and from 20 of 27 foreign countries. The bulk of the data is organized in five data tables. (Author/TR)
