The Effect of Differential College Experiences in Developing the Students' Self- and Occupational-Concepts: An Application of Discriminant Analysis with Longitudinal Data.
Edwards, Keith J.; Tuckman, Bruce W.
Entering students at an unidentified community college had lower self-esteem and identified with lower-status occupations than their university counterparts. Two years later the differences in self-esteem had been eliminated, liberal arts students at the community college identified with higher-status occupations, and business and technical students at the community college identified more closely with occupations that corresponded to their chosen curricula. These relationships were especially clear when the 19 dependent variables were reduced to a 2-dimensional discriminant space. This report offers a complete and technical discussion of the data.
