EDUCATIONAL, VOCATIONAL, AND SOCIAL PERFORMANCES OF COUNSELED AND UNCOUNSELED YOUTH 10 YEARS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL.
ROTHNEY, JOHN W.M.
DIFFERENCES WERE DETERMINED BETWEEN COUNSELED AND CONTROL SUBJECTS 10 YEARS AFTER COUNSELING. THIS STUDY WAS DESIGNED AS A FOLLOWUP TO PREVIOUS STUDIES, WHICH BEGAN IN 1948, WITH SOME 700 HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO WERE ASSIGNED RANDOMLY TO EXPERIMENTAL OR CONTROL GROUPS. SUBJECTS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS WERE GIVEN INTENSIVE COUNSELING DURING EACH OF THEIR LAST 3 YEARS OF HIGH SCHOOL. THE CONTROL GROUP WAS NOT COUNSELED. AT SEVERAL TIME INTERVALS (INCLUDING THE TIME OF THE IMMEDIATE STUDY) AFTER THE SUBJECTS GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL, DATA WERE COLLECTED ON VOCATIONAL CHOICES AND PROGRESS, SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND ADJUSTMENTS, PSYCHOLOGICAL PERFORMANCES ON TESTS, AND ACADEMIC PROGRESS. FINDINGS FROM THESE PREVIOUS STUDIES WERE COMPARED WITH THOSE OF THE 10-YEAR, FOLLOWUP PROJECT. FEW SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES WERE DISCOVERED. ALL SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS IN OCCUPATIONAL CATEGORIES (DISCOVERED EARLIER) HAD DISAPPEARED AFTER 10 YEARS. IN RESPONSE TO ITEMS WHICH REFLECTED AIMS (GOALS) OF COUNSELING PROGRAMS, THERE WERE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN FAVOR OF THE COUNSELED GROUP. (JC)
