CHARACTERISTICS OF HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS AS RELATED TO SUBSEQUENT COLLEGE ATTENDANCE.
BAILEY, BENJAMIN H.
THIS STUDY EXAMINED "TALENT LOSS" FROM INADEQUATE EDUCATION IN THE STATE OF WEST VIRGINIA. THE CHARACTERISTICS OF 1,698 HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS FROM 10 SCHOOLS CONSTITUTING A SAMPLE OF THE STATE WERE STUDIED IN RELATION TO SUBSEQUENT COLLEGE ATTENDANCE. STUDENTS RESPONDED TO A PERSONAL DATA FORM, THE COLLEGE IMAGE INDEX, THE SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ABILITY TEST, THE ACADEMIC SELF-CONCEPT SCALE, AND THE MCCLELLAND NEED ACHIEVEMENT TEST. IN THE FALL OF 1964, THOSE STUDENTS WHO WENT TO COLLEGE WERE IDENTIFIED. ANOTHER SURVEY FOLLOWED IN THE FALL OF 1965. THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT PERSONALITY VARIABLES ANALYZED IN THE STUDY WERE SIGNIFICANT IN DIFFERENTIATING BETWEEN COLLEGE AND NONCOLLEGE SUBJECTS. ECONOMIC FACTORS SEEMED INDIRECTLY RELATED TO COLLEGE ATTENDANCE BECAUSE THEY DETERMINE THE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS WHICH GIVE RISE TO SIGNIFICANT PERSONALITY VARIABLES. NO ONE VARIABLE WAS FOUND SIGNIFICANT FOR ALL SOCIOECONOMIC LEVELS. (SK)
