Office Work Perceptions Held by Tenth Grade Female Students Enrolled in Urban High Schools Serving Disadvantaged Youth.
Dye, Franklin Haddox
The purpose of this study was to develop a valid and reliable perception instrument and to use the instrument to identify the significant perceptions of office work held by 10th grade female students enrolled in urban high schools serving disadvantaged youth, and to compare these perceptions with those held by 10th grade female students enrolled in urban high schools serving advantaged youth and with those held by beginning female workers in office occupations. Data were collected by a 50-item perception instrument which was administered to 1,043 female students enrolled in 16 high schools and to 155 beginning female workers in office occupations. The office work perceptions held by 10th grade female students in disadvantaged areas were found to differ significantly from those held by advantaged students in four of the eight cities included in the study; they also differed significantly from those held by beginning female workers in office occupations in one of the three cities included in the study. Also, there were significant differences among the office work perceptions when the total scores were compared for all groups of 10th grade female students enrolled in urban high schools serving disadvantaged youth in the eight U.S. cities.
