Biographic Survey, Part II: Biographic Comparisons of Students Planning to Attend Different Types of College Institutions.
Beanblossom, Gary F.
This paper surveys and analyzes biographic data from the first SURVEY OF EDUCATIONAL PLANS AFTER HIGH SCHOOL (Bureau of Testing, University of Washington) administered in 1966-67 to more than 7500 high school seniors in the state. The characteristics of students planning to attend 2-year colleges, state or private colleges, and state universities, subdivided by sex, are compared through a series of charts. Biographic variables such as parents' education, father's occupation, area of residence, size of high school graduation class, time of decision to attend college, high school subjects most and least enjoyed, high school study habits, anticipated college study habits, conditions favorable to learning, occupational plans, choice of college major, educational aspirations, and marriage plans are examined. It is apparent from these data that different college populations are contrastable, not just in terms of traditional academic measures such as grades and tests, but also in socioeconomic background, interests, values, and future plans.
