A Study of Attitudes Held by Black Students Living in Residence Halls.
Davis, Joseph S.
A student's attitude toward the educational institution he attends may have an effect on his academic achievement there. Much of that attitude is developed in dormitories. This study attempted to investigate the effects of providing black students with a resident hall floor which would have a higher concentration of black students than was normal for the campus. Two groups of 12 black students each and 2 groups of 14 white students participated in the study. All groups were pretested on their attitudes toward dormitory living. The black experimental group that had negative attitudes toward dormitory living on the pre-test had positive attitudes on the post-test, while the white experimental group changed their attitudes from positive on the pre-test to negative on the post-test.
