A Comparison of Students Who Enter Education with Those Who Do Not.
Dravland, Vern; Greene, Myrna
This study examined the characteristics of declared education majors and compared them to students who majored in other fields. Specific comparisons were made between the two groups: (1) biographical characteristics (age and sex) and academic abilities (grade point average and English competency); (2) psychological characteristics; (3) university success (termination status and grades); and (4) post university success in terms of type of employment, position, salary, responsibilities, and further education. Findings are presented in tabular form and discussed along with implications for further research. Capsule descriptions of personality traits are appended. (CJ)
