THE JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENT.
BECKER, SUSAN J.; COOLEY, WILLIAM W.
USING DATA OBTAINED BY PROJECT TALENT, A NATIONWIDE STUDY OF HIGH SCHOOL YOUTH, THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THE JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENT. JUNIOR COLLEGE, NONCOLLEGE, AND SENIOR COLLEGE STUDENTS WERE COMPARED IN TERMS OF SIX MEASURES OF INFORMATION AND EIGHT MEASURES OF GENERAL APTITUDE AND ABILITY. THROUGH THE USE OF A 6-GROUP DISCRIMINANT ANALYSIS, IT WAS FOUND THAT JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENTS TENDED TO BE MORE LIKE NONCOLLEGE STUDENTS IN ABILITY. HOWEVER, SEX DIFFERENCES IN THE ABILITY MEASURES WERE GREATER THAN THE DIFFERENCES AMONG THE THREE GROUPS ARRANGED ACCORDING TO THEIR COLLEGE PLANS. ALTHOUGH THE JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENT RESEMBLED THE NONCOLLEGE STUDENT IN TERMS OF ABILITY, HE APPEARED TO BE MORE LIKE THE SENIOR COLLEGE STUDENT IN TERMS OF SOCIOECONOMIC FACTORS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE JOURNAL," VOLUME 44, JANUARY 1966. (AUTHOR/GK)
