Drop in test scores renews interest in remedial aid
By STEPHEN HARRIS
Remedial assistance is offered to UNC students
in one regular and several optional programs, but
students interested in enrolling in the
improvement programs must initiate their
A report for the UNC Board of Governors
released charges last week that UNC and some
other schools in the University system make little
or no effort to provide remedial help.
One official responded to the report by stating
the school does not need an extensive remedial
program "with the type of student we have at
However, recent indications that Scholastic
Aptitude Test (SAT) scores have been declining
nationwide have spawned new interest in the
Similar to national figures, SAT scores among
entering UNC freshmen have slipped down over
the last 10 years.
In 1966 the average SAT score of an entering
UNC freshman was 1152, according to the
freshman profile, published by UNC
Undergraduate Admissions. From 1966, the
average score steadily dropped each year (except
1972) to a low of 1080 in 1975. The average last
year was 1090. The 1977 average is just over 1080.
Remedial programs at UNC may acquire new
significance with the recent proposal by school
officials to increase minority enrollment at
predominantly white schools by 32 per cent over
the next five years.
The only regular course which now can be
considered "remedial" is English W, which began
this fall. English W is required of all entering
freshmen who made 400 or below on the SAT
verbal section. Students take English W before
they can take English I.
The English department planned to offer only
10 English W courses this fall, but had to add six
more sections as the freshman class arrived.
"The English department has committed itself
to this course," said Connie C. Eble, who helped
construct English W. "It is an expensive course
because of the personnel teaching it. We feel our
professional reputations depend on teaching this
course well to students."
Four associate English professors and two
department instructors are among the English W
teachers this fall. Most English I and 2 courses are
taught by graduate students.
"After several years of having some students
failing English I," Eble said, "the English
department decided to put in another (freshman
English) course. We are looking at this course
positively. We have a hand-picked staff. We want
it to achieve."
Students from North Carolina dominate the
English W courses, according to Eble. But
otherwise, "It is a very nice mixture." she said.
"And their writing is not as bad as we were led to
A second English remedial program is English
C, the writing laboratory. It is a tutorial program
which helps students with writing deficiencies.
Gayle St. John heads the program. She teaches
freshmen from English I and 2 classes mostly, but
has contact with all types of students.
English C is required only to remove a
composition condition (CC) from a student's
transcript. A CC is placed on a transcript by an
undergraduate professor who believes a student's
writing skills are inadequate. Sessions with St.
John are required before a CC can be taken off a
Any professor can give a CC. and no student
can graduate with a CC on his record.
"I find this is extremely effective." St. John said.
"And I do not know of a program of this type
elsewhere. Here you have professors searching out
students who need help. Professors all over
campus are involved."
Six students were given CCs last semester.
Students usually meet with St. John once a week,
and a sample of a student's work is discussed.
The chemistry department offers Chemistry 10
to students who have trouble with the regular
freshman chemistry course, Chemistry 1 1 (often
considered one of UNC's hardest freshmen
courses) are sent by their instructors to Chemistry
10, which begins after the 12th Chemistry 11
The University's major remedial program is the
Reading Program, located in Phillips Annex. The
reading lab is an optional program which often
helps students with remedial problems.
This fall, the reading lab will be expanding its
programs, according to Henry Powell, head of the
program. The expansion is intended to provide
more individual attention by the staff to students
with remedial problems. The lab's hours will be
extended to 8 p.m. two days a week.

Merkel, 45, a department head with IBM at the
Research Triangle, officially opened his campaign
He said he opposes the town's present level of
funding of the bus system. "I don't think the
taxpayers of the town should subsidize the bus
system for the University," he said. "The
University ought to be deeply involved financially
in the bus system."
He said he feels Southern Bell's installation
rates were unfair, but he added the town could not
offer any solution to the problem.
Merkel said he opposed the seven-cent tax hike
Inconsistent methods found in faculty hiring Bouhon

providing more parking downtown, seeking a
quick solution to the town's water and sewer
problems, and approving new development in the
Merkel said he has no immediate solutions to
Chapel Hill's water crisis, but he said he favors
filling Jordan Lake.
In another campaign development, Chapel Hill
Alderman Gerry Cohen has scheduled a press
conference at 2 p.m. today to officially announce
his candidacy for reelection to the board.
Cohen's press conference will be in the
Municipal Building. He is expected to run for a
second term on the board.

Schools and departments at UNC use different
methods for hiring faculty members, and many do
not operate under explicit written criteria in
hiring, promoting and granting tenure, a recent
The findings, released last week, are from a
survey conducted in February by the UNC
committee on the Status of Women on hiring
procedures in all UNC departments and schools.
The survey was a follow-up of resolutions adopted
by the committee in December 1975.
The survey found that all schools and
departments list and publicize positions nationally
and use either research or faculty-personnel
committees in all but small departments when
recruiting for positions of more than one year's
The survey also disclosed, however, that schools
and departments were divided in the use ol written
criteria for hiring, promotingand grantingtenure.
The survey contained four questions concerning
the resolutions that were passed 1 4 months earlier.
The resolutions passed by the committee in 1975
urged that departments: list and publicize their
openings nationally; use search or faculty
committees to evaluate prospects under explicit
written criteria: and formulate explicit
promotional and reappointment procedures.
Joan Scott, chairperson of the Committee on
the Status of Women since July I. was not on the
committee when the survey was conducted. She
said, however, that the results contained some
"interesting informal ion."
Judging from some of the complaints she has
received from different departments, she said
some departments evidently have changed their
policies since the survey was made.

answered 'no.' They just got back. They

want to. It takes a little while to get used to

there's just no water left at all. But maybe
some citizens can leave, too go visit their
