BACHMAN, JERALD G.; AND OTHERS
THIS PAPER PRESENTS A SUMMARY OF RESEARCH OBJECTIVES AND PROCEDURES TO BE EMPLOYED IN A 3-YEAR STUDY OF ADOLESCENT BOYS. THE BROAD OBJECTIVE IS TO STUDY IMPORTANT AREAS OF GROWTH AND CHANGE AS RELATED TO DIFFERENCES WITHIN AND BETWEEN THREE ENVIRONMENTS--SCHOOL, WORK, AND UNEMPLOYMENT. THE INTENTION IS TO LEARN WHAT DIMENSIONS OF ENVIRONMENTS HAVE WHAT KINDS OF EFFECTS ON WHAT KINDS OF PERSONS. ADDITIONAL PURPOSES OF THE STUDY INCLUDE AN ANALYSIS OF SCHOOLS AS ORGANIZATIONS, THE TESTING OF HYPOTHESES DERIVED FROM SELF-IDENTITY THEORY, THE MEASUREMENT OF OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION AND ITS CORRELATES, AND FURTHER STUDY OF THE CAUSES OF LEAVING SCHOOL. A SAMPLE OF 2,200 TO 2,500 BOYS STARTING 10TH GRADE IN UNITED STATES PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS WILL BE FOLLOWED THROUGH INTERVIEWS, QUESTIONNAIRES, AND TEST BATTERIES DURING THE 3 YEARS. A SERIES OF REPORTS, BEGINNING LATE IN 1967 AND EXTENDING THROUGH 1971, WILL PRESENT RESULTS BASED ON EACH MAJOR DATA COLLECTION IN THE LONGITUDINAL DESIGN. (NS)
