SUCCESS OF YOUNG ADULT MALE RETARDATES.
PECK, JOHN R.; AND OTHERS
THE HABILITATION OF EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED YOUTH WAS STUDIED TO DETERMINE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PREDICTOR VARIABLES. TESTS AND INTERVIEWS BY QUESTIONNAIRES WERE MADE ON 5 GROUPS OF YOUTHS WITH 25 IN EACH GROUP. DATA WERE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE THE RELATIVE WEIGHTS OF EACH VARIABLE AND MEASURE. DIFFERENCES AMONG THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS WERE TESTED AND COMPARISONS MADE WITH THE CONTROL SAMPLE. CONCLUSIONS WERE--(1) PERSONALITY ASPECTS WERE INTERRELATED, (2) MEASURES OF PERSONALITY AND COGNITIVE ATTRIBUTES WERE VALID PREDICTORS OF SUCCESS, AND (3) EMR YOUTHS PARTICIPATING IN A TRAINING PROGRAM ACHIEVED AND WERE MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN THOSE WHO HAD LITTLE OR NO TRAINING. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE TO MODIFY THE BATTERY OF PREDICTOR INSTRUMENTS FOR SCREENING USE AND EXPLORE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND SUCCESS. (RS)
