Project Description/Abstract

I am applying for a CART Summer Grant for 2006 to support research I will be conducting on educational late-blooming. I have applied for a sabbatical leave in the fall of 2006 to do this work, and this Summer Grant will enable me to 1) review previous interview tapes and transcriptions I have from preliminary work I did on this topic, 2) develop more structured questions for use in the research in the fall and 3) draw a sample of older students in cooperation with the Office for Institutional Research. Completing this work in the summer will allow me to conduct data collection and analysis starting early in the fall. In turn, this would make it possible for me to begin writing results of my research for presentation at professional meetings and for publication.
