HELP WANTED--VARIABLES RELATED TO AREAS OF INTEREST FOR ENTERING STUDENTS.
BARGER, BEN; HALL, EVERETTE
MANY STUDENTS ENTER COLLEGE WITH A SPECIFIC DEFICIT OR PROBLEM AREA WHICH WILL KEEP THEM FROM REALIZING THEIR POTENTIAL UNLESS SOME REMEDIAL ACTION IS TAKEN. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS DEVELOPED TO IDENTIFY PROBLEM AREAS OR SPECIFIC DEFICITS, AND WAS ADMINISTERED TO 3,128 NEW STUDENTS TOGETHER WITH A QUESTIONNAIRE TO ASSESS STUDENT BACKGROUND AND EDUCATIONAL PLANS. FOR CONVENIENCE IN PRESENTATION AND DISCUSSION, THE DATA WERE DIVIDED INTO SECTIONS ON FAMILY BACKGROUND, STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTONOMY, ATTITUDES TOWARD VOCATIONAL CHOICE, COMPONENTS OF SELF-CONCEPT, DEGREE OF INTEREST IN RECEIVING HELP, APPRAISAL OF PARENTS, SATISFACTION, SELF-DISCLOSURE TO PARENTS AND FRIENDS, AND SCHOOL AND ABILITY TEST RAW SCORES. IN ADDITION, FIVE MAIN AREAS OF STUDENT INTEREST IN RECEIVING HELP (BASED ON A 10-ALTERNATIVE QUESTION) WERE DEFINED. THESE FIVE AREAS WERE COMPARED WITH EACH QUESTION ON THE PROJECT QUESTIONNAIRE BY SIMPLE ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE. A SUMMARY OF THE RESULTS, SUGGESTIONS FOR FOLLOWUP OF THE SURVEY, DETAILED TABULAR DATA, AND A COPY OF THE PROJECT QUESTIONNAIRE ARE ALSO INCLUDED. (PS)
