Junior College Transfers and the Environmental Assessment Technique.
Ihrig, James P.
This study compared two subgroups at the University of Missouri: the junior college transfers and the native students. The Environmental Assessment Technique (EAT) was used, with its personal orientation classifications of realistic, scientific, social, conventional, enterprising, and artistic. The major for each of the subjects was categorized by orientation, and the percentages for the two subgroups were compared to test the null hypotheses that there would be no significant difference between the subgroups in any of the six orientations. No such differences were found. The results of the study suggest that the transfers are representative of the university student body and have been well assimilated by the native culture. Since EAT proved practical for describing a social environment, the author suggests refining it and using it to show differences among the subcultures on a junior college campus. Such differences would show where adjustments are needed in program offerings. (HH)
