THE EFFECT OF SECURITY AS AN INDEPENDENT VARIABLE ON SELECTED VARIABLES RELATED TO PERCEPTION, COGNITION, AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT.
GILL, NEWELL T.; AND OTHERS
THE EFFECT OF SECURITY ON PERSONAL ADJUSTMENT, PERCEPTUAL AND COGNITIVE STYLE, AND PERSONAL EFFECTIVENESS WAS EVALUATED. THE SAMPLE WAS 249 STUDENTS ENROLLED IN A TEACHER EDUCATION, CHILD STUDY PROGRAM. PERFORMANCE ON MASLOW'S SECURITY INDEX INVENTORY DETERMINED AN INDIVIDUAL'S PLACEMENT IN ONE OF THREE GROUPS. ROKEACH'S DOGMATISM SCALE (FORM E) AND THURSTON'S CLOSURE FLEXIBILITY SCALE WERE ADMINISTERED TO THE THREE GROUPS, AND AN ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE WAS USED TO STUDY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GROUPS. THERE WERE NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SEXES ON ANY OF THE THREE VARIABLES. SECURE GROUPS WERE LESS DOGMATIC THAN INSECURE GROUPS AND HAD A HIGHER MEAN GRADE POINT AVERAGE. AN ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS AND THEIR IMPLICATIONS FOR EDUCATORS IS DISCUSSED. (JM)
