TILLERY, DALE; AND OTHERS
A FOUR-STATE STUDY OF NINTH AND TWELFTH GRADE STUDENTS WAS MADE BY SCOPE (SCHOOL TO COLLEGE--OPPORTUNITIES FOR POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION) TO DISCOVER HOW, WHEN, AND WHY STUDENTS MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION AND CAREERS. THE INFLUENCE OF PARENTS, SCHOOLS, AND PEERS UPON THE NATURE OF THESE DECISIONS IS ALSO EXAMINED. A COMPOSITE PROFILE OF NINTH-GRADE STUDENTS FROM 244 PUBLIC AND 55 NON-PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS PRESENTED. ACADEMIC ABILITY TEST SCORE RESULTS (SHOWN IN PERCENTILES), STUDENT DISTRIBUTION WITHIN THE PERCENTILE RANKS, AND AN ITEM ANALYSIS OF A STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE ARE ALSO INCLUDED. THE QUESTIONNAIRE CONTAINED ITEMS PERTAINING TO FAMILY AND HOME MILIEU, PARENTAL EXPECTATIONS, AND STUDENT SELF-EVALUATION, VALUES, PERCEPTIONS OF SCHOOL, AND INFORMATION-SEEKING ACTIVITIES. AN ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONS RELATED TO OCCUPATIONAL PREFERENCES AND ACTIVITIES IS MADE SEPARATELY. STUDENT DISTRIBUTION AND PERCENTILE RANKS ARE SHOWN FOR A PROVISIONAL INTELLECTUAL PREDISPOSITION SCALE DEVELOPED FOR THE STUDY. (PS)
