Some Characteristics of Finalists in the 1966 National Achievement Scholarship Program.
Blumenfeld, Warren S.
As part of the selection process of the 1966 National Achievement Scholarship Program, a program for able Negro high school students interested in attending college, 1,029 Finalists completed a 94-item questionnaire. The percentage of Finalists responding to each alternative of each item was obtained, and a matrix of intercorrelations of 50 selected items was calculated. In terms of their item responses, the Finalists appeared to be high aspiring, high grade achievers, academically oriented, professional occupation oriented, high extracurricular achievers, active, interesting, and talented young people.
