THE PSYCHOLOGICAL IMPACT OF THE PUBLIC 2-YEAR COLLEGE ON CERTAIN NONINTELLECTUAL FUNCTIONS.
PLANT, WALTER T.; TELFORD, CHARLES W.
THIS STUDY SOUGHT TO DETERMINE IF THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN SELECTED PERSONALITY TRAITS, IDEOLOGIES, AND VALUES OF STUDENTS WHO ATTEND A 2-YEAR PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGE. A BATTERY OF PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS WAS ADMINISTERED TO ALL PERSONS APPLYING FOR ADMISSION AS COLLEGE FRESHMEN FOR THE FALL SEMESTER OF 1960 AT ONE OF SIX CALIFORNIA PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES. THE BATTERY CONSISTED OF FIVE SCALES FROM THE CALIFORNIA PSYCHOLOGICAL INVENTORY, THE ROKEACH DOGMATISM SCALE, FORM E, AND THE ALLPORT-VERNON-LINDZEY STUDY OF VALUES. USABLE RESPONSES WERE OBTAINED FROM APPROXIMATELY 4,500 WOULD-BE COLLEGE FRESHMEN. IN THE SPRING OF 1962, THE SAME BATTERY OF PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS WAS SENT BY MAIL TO THESE SUBJECTS, AND USABLE RESULTS WERE OBTAINED FROM APPROXIMATELY 1,800. WITHIN THE LIMITS OF THE DATA IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT MANY OF THE CHANGES ATTRIBUTED TO THE "COLLEGIATE EXPERIENCE" MAY BE NO MORE THAN DEVELOPMENTAL CHANGES. (TC)
