Attitudes and Characteristics of the Adult Coed at Selected Universities.
A random sample of all women 25 years of age or older, enrolled for the fall 1966 semester at three mid-western universities, were mailed the Adult Coed Attitude Inventory. The responses (60% plus) were returned on mark sense cards, hand verified, and tabulated on a computer. The inventory gathered information on age, marital status, employment, extracurricular activities, families and family attitudes toward the return of the women to school, school services found to be helpful, academic programs, financial status, and potential employment. The last part of the questionnaire was a projective design to assess how the subjects viewed themselves and their role, and how they compared themselves with other women. Some differences in the sample responses were found when the data for each school was examined individually. The author touches briefly on these. (PS)
