Research in College Admissions


by Dean K. Whitla — 1969

In many ways this report is dated as it is being written. In a very real sense it is inappropriate to use the library style of research for art article on research in admissions. Much of the good work in this area is done, not by the scholars of the field, but by the effective working pragmatists who see a problem, collect some data, make analyses, interpret the results in the context of the situation they know so well, revise their operating procedures and proceed to apply them. This approach leaves behind it none of the academic fallout. No papers are written; none is cited. There is no record except the hazy recall of the central figure—the person who did the work.
