The Assessment of Attitudes of Illinois Public High School Counselors Toward the Junior College.
James, Gary Armon
The Junior College Attitude Survey, an instrument designed to measure the attitudes of public high school counselors in Illinois regarding junior colleges, was developed in this study. A Likert-type scale numerically ranked responses to a set of statements about junior colleges. The scale offered five degrees of intensity: "strongly agree,""agree,""undecided,""disagree," or "strongly disagree." The mean score of the total sample showed that counselors have a slightly favorable attitude toward junior colleges; those whose high schools had been visited by junior college representatives were significantly more favorable toward junior colleges than were other counselors. It was recommended that junior colleges make an effort to send representatives to high schools to inform the personnel and students about educational opportunities available at junior colleges. (MS)
