CHILMAN, CATHERINE S.; MEYER, DONALD L.
A COMPARISON WAS MADE OF THE ACHIEVEMENTS AND ASPIRATIONS OF UN DERGRADUATE MARRIED STUDENTS WITH THOSE OF UNDERGRADUATE UNMARRIED STUDENTS. THE STUDY OBJECTIVES WERE (1) TO DETERMINE TO WHAT EXTENT MARRIED MEN AND WOMEN UNDERGRADUATE COLLEGE STUDENTS DIFFER FROM UNMARRIED STUDENTS IN ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT, STATED ATTITUDES TOWARD THEIR EDUCATION AND EDUCATIONAL-VOCATIONAL GOALS, AND ASSOCIATED SOCIOPSYCHOLOGICAL VARIABLES AND (2) TO ASCERTAIN THE EXPRESSED ATTITUDE OF WOMEN AND THEIR HUSBANDS TOWARD THE FUTURE EDUCATION OF BOTH MEMBERS OF THE MARRIED PAIR. THE STRATIFIED RANDOM SAMPLE OF MARRIED STUDENTS CONSISTED OF 109 MARRIED MEN AND WOMEN, AND THE STRATIFIED SAMPLE OF SINGLE STUDENTS CONSISTED OF 47 SINGLE MEN AND 55 SINGLE WOMEN. THE STERN ACTIVITIES INDEX WAS USED TO MEASURE PERSONALITY NEEDS. SEMISTRUCTURED INTERVIEWS WERE CONDUCTED WITH A RANDOM SAMPLE OF 17 MARRIED COUPLES, 12 SINGLE WOMEN, AND 13 SINGLE MEN. RECORDS OF THE ACADEMIC GRADES DURING THE PRECEDING SEMESTER WERE OBTAINED FOR ALL OF THE STUDY POPULATION. SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE FOUND FOR CERTAIN MEASURED PERSONALITY TRAITS AND VARIABLES RELATED TO (1) EDUCATIONAL VALUES, GOALS, AND ATTITUDES, (2) FAMILY BACKGROUND, CURRENT LIFE SITUATION, (3) DATING AND COURTSHIP, AND (4) PERCEIVED SATISFACTION. SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES ARE DETAILED IN THE REPORT. (HB)
