COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY POTENTIAL OF SELECTED JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENTS.
TUCKER, SYLVIA BOLTZ
CHARACTERISTICS OF 527 STUDENTS IN TWO JUNIOR COLLEGES WERE ANALYZED IN AN ATTEMPT TO RELATE THEIR LEVELS OF COLLEGE ELIGIBILITY (UNIVERSITY, STATE COLLEGE, JUNIOR COLLEGE, OR JUNIOR COLLEGE PROBATION) TO THEIR CONCEPTS OF AN IDEAL COLLEGE, THEIR INTELLECTUAL DISPOSITIONS, THEIR CREATIVE INCLINATIONS, AND THEIR HIGH-SCHOOL GRADE AVERAGES. INSTRUMENTS USED WERE THE COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY ENVIRONMENT SCALES AND THE OMNIBUS PERSONALITY INVENTORY. THE RESULTS OF THIS STUDY SUGGEST THAT THE CURRENT COLLEGE PRACTICE OF ADMITTING STUDENTS MAINLY ON THE BASIS OF ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT MAY BE DEPRIVING BOTH THE COLLEGE AND SOCIETY OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE HIGHLY CREATIVE. A REVISION OF COLLEGE ADMISSION STANDARDS MIGHT BE UNDERTAKEN TO PROFIT FROM THIS DIVERSITY OF TALENT. THIS DISSERTATION IS AVAILABLE AS DOCUMENT NO. 65-2558, FOR $2.75 (MICROFILM) OR $9.00 (XEROGRAPHIC COPY), FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., 313 NORTH FIRST ST., ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48107. (HH)
