Parents as Referral Agents: A Retention Intervention

Counseling Center Retention Study Group* Summary Parents who take an active interest in their child's college experience may be serving an important function as an influence encouraging their child to remain in college until graduation. During two sessions of the 1988 Summer Parent Orientation, a parents' support project was described, in which parents would be given information sufficient to help them serve as resource referral agents for their child. COUNSELING CENTER. Marie L.


Miville and William E. Sedlacek Research Report # 4-93 Data were collected in cooperation with the orientation office and were analyzed using facilities of the Computer Science Center, both at the University of Maryland, College Park. A sample of 295 transfer students (51% female) and 2584 freshman students (50% female) completed a questionnaire containing a number of demographic and attitudinal items as part of a summer orientation program. An important trend in higher education settings in recent years has been the steady increase of transfer students (Peng, 1978). For example, persons from a higher socioeconomic (SES) background have been found to transfer from a community college to a 4-year institution at a higher rate than those who are from a lower SES background (Peng, 1978; Velez & Javalgi, 1987).

Students may receive actual letter grades, or they may receive something to indicate satisfactory or unsatisfactory grades. There are some important things to remember about midterm grades – and to help your student remember in order to make sense – and productive use – of these mid-semester grades. Midterm grades will go to the student, not to the parents. It is important to keep midterm grades in perspective. Related Posts:
