DESIGNING THE STUDY. PROJECT TALENT MONOGRAPH SERIES, MONOGRAPH NUMBER 1.
FLANAGAN, JOHN C.; AND OTHERS
THE STEPS IN PLANNING AND CARRYING OUT THE INITIAL PROJECT ARE OUTLINED. THE PROJECT IS AIMED AT PROVIDING A SOUND FACTUAL BASIS WHICH WOULD ASSIST PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS IN HELPING EACH INDIVIDUAL TO REALIZE HIS GREATEST POTENTIAL. TESTS WERE DEVISED TO ANALYZE APTITUDE, ACHIEVEMENT, INTEREST, AND PERSONALITY. THE 2-DAY TEST BATTERY INCLUDED QUESTIONNAIRES ON STUDENT BACKGROUND AND LIFE HISTORY. THERE WERE ALSO MEASURES OF MOTIVATIONS, LEVELS OF VOCATIONAL AND ECONOMIC ASPIRATION, VALUE SYSTEMS, AND PERSONAL PLANS. THE TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO APPROXIMATELY 440,000 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FROM A RANDOM SAMPLING OF ALL SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN THE UNITED STATES. A FOLLOWUP STUDY WILL BE MADE APPROXIMATELY ONE YEAR AFTER THESE STUDENTS GRADUATE. RESULTS EXPECTED ARE--A SET OF STANDARDS FOR EDUCATIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL MEASUREMENT, A COMPREHENSIVE COUNSELING GUIDE, INCREASED UNDERSTANDING OF HOW YOUNG PEOPLE CHOOSE THEIR LIFE WORK, AND A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES THAT PREPARE STUDENTS FOR THEIR LIFE WORK.
