Inventory of Certain Characteristics and Opinions of Kansas Community Junior College Students. Final Report.
Anderson, Kenneth E.; Michal, Robert D.
The purpose of this study was to obtain normative data on Kansas junior college students relative to the following areas: (1) socioeconomic background; (2) occupational and educational aspirations; (3) appraisal of counseling and guidance received; (4) self-evaluation of traits and abilities; (5) evaluation of the college climate; and (6) factors influencing college attendance. The instrument used to obtain the above data was the 157-item Inquiry to Kansas Community Junior College Students, designed to obtain data for both immediate information, and longitudinal research. Norms reported in this study are based on 7,734 responses, representing 73.5 percent of all students enrolled in Kansas junior colleges in the fall of 1968. The findings are presented in tabular form without discussion, each of the 157 items presented with the percentage of males, females, and total students responding to each choice of each item. The profile as provided is intended for use by faculties, students, administrators, boards of trustees, and government officials involved with the Kansas Community Junior Colleges. As most of the respondents intend to transfer to four-year colleges and universities, the data will be used in future research in an attempt to characterize the successful junior-college transfer student.
