COLLEGE STUDENT SUBCULTURES AND PERSONAL VALUES.
APOSTAL, ROBERT A.
THIS STUDY WAS DESIGNED TO FIND OUT IF RELATIONSHIPS EXIST BETWEEN COLLEGE SUBCULTURES AND STUDENT VALUES. ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-NINE STUDENTS IN THE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MAINE WERE ADMINISTERED THE STUDY OF VALUES, WHICH MEASURES SIX VALUE ORIENTATIONS, AND THE CLARK-TROW TYPOLOGY WHICH DESCRIBES FOUR STUDENT SUBCULTURES. MEANS AND STANDARD DEVIATIONS WERE CALCULATED ON EACH SCALE OF THE STUDY OF VALUES FOR THE GROUP AND FOR SEX, COLLEGE MAJOR, AND COLLEGE SUBGROUPS. T-TESTS OF SIGNIFICANCE WERE COMPUTED BETWEEN VARIOUS TYPES OF MEAN SCORES. USING NUMBER RANKINGS, CHI SQUARES WERE COMPUTED FOR SUBCULTURES BY SEX, COLLEGE, AND ACADEMIC MAJOR COMPARISONS. A SIMPLE VALUES-BY-SUBCULTURE TABULATION FOR EACH OF THE SIX VALUE SCALES WAS PERFORMED. VALUES-BY-IDEAS AND VALUES-BY-COLLEGE ANALYSES REQUIRED THE COMPUTATION OF 12 CHI SQUARES. RESULTS ARE DISCUSSED RELATING TO THE STUDY OF VALUES, COLLEGE STUDENT SUBCULTURES, AND A TEST OF THE HYPOTHESIS THAT NO RELATIONSHIP EXISTS BETWEEN STUDENT VALUES AND SUBCULTURES. ON THE BASIS OF THIS TEST, THE HYPOTHESIS WAS REFUTED. REASONS EXPLAINING WHY SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS WERE FOUND BETWEEN VALUES AND SUBCULTURES ARE GIVEN. TABLES ARE INCLUDED. (PS)
