A Description of the Psychological Environment of Students at the Agricultural and Technical College at Delhi.
Bertrami, Anthony
The psychological environment of a college is determined by the inner needs of the students and environmental press, i.e. the stresses, conformity-demanding influence, and rewards of the college. To determine the psychological environment at the Agricultural and Technical College at Delhi, 100 males and 85 females were administered the College Characteristics Index during spring 1969. This index is composed of 30 scales that measure various intellectual and non-intellectual factors. Standard scores were derived from individual raw scores and plotted on factor score profile sheets that indicated norms based on students from 32 colleges. Plottings for the total group as well as various subgroups, such as males and females and selected program areas, were presented. Comparisons were also made among Delhi students and those from Hudson Valley, Rockland, and Onetona Colleges. It was found that the scores of the Delhi students were significantly lower than the norm group on the factors of aspiration level, intellectual climate, student dignity, academic climate, academic achievement, and self-expression. It was emphasized that these findings do not necessarily, however, represent anything good or bad about the college; the factor scores must be interpreted in terms of the purpose of the college.
