SCOPE: Grade Eleven Profile 1968 Questionnaire Selected Items.
Tillery, Dale; And Others
The primary research emphasis of School to College: Opportunities for Post Secondary Education (SCOPE) is to analyze and report the interrelationships of yearly data in such ways as to help answer questions about why different students behave and believe as they do, and how these actions and attitudes influence the decision-making process. For this study, eleventh grade students from four states completed a questionnaire. Several new areas of student life were investigated in this report. Among these are guidance contacts with counselors and teachers about work, and information about counselors and teachers. Students also used a series of 20 role behaviors to describe themselves in three different situations: (1) at home, (2) at school, and (3) with friends. For each item response in this grade 11 report, it is possible to observe similarities and differences between the sexes, across aspiration groups, and among the four states. One noted conclusion was that grades as an incentive to learning are more attractive to girls than to boys. Complete data tables are presented according to student response to the questionnaire.
