Alienation, Achievement Motivation, and Attitudes Toward School in Economically Disadvantaged Boys. Papers and Reports, Volume 1, Number 2.
Silverman, Mitchell; Blount, William R.
An economically disadvantaged population of 60 white and 60 Negro males (ages from nine years to 14 years) were given an 150-item opinionnaire containing seven measures of alienation, six measures of achievement motivation and five measures of attitudes toward school. As expected, Negroes exhibited greater degrees of alienation and more negative attitudes toward school. Negroes appeared to increase in achievement motivation over age while whites tended to decrease. (Author)
