Committee Urges Individual Study

The able and mature college student of today is hampered by study programs designed for his less efficient counterpart of previous years, a study commission declared yesterday.

Chances for independent study are necessary for today's diverse student body, which "lends itself poorly to an assembly-line type of educational process," the Commission on the College Student of the American Council on Education reported.

The committee also recommended that colleges reconsider such "artificial" practices as grades-and-credits requirements for graduation and the four-year span of study.

These conclusions are part of a report on the first of two major inquiries into changes in college students in the last 30 years and the implications of these changes for colleges and universities.
