Social Values and Expectancies as Predictors of Curriculum Satisfaction and Academic Performance in Higher Education. Final Report.
Wichita State Univ., KS.
This report describes a study that was conducted to further clarify how the expectations of students interrelate with their evaluation of their professors and their satisfaction with their course of study. The study also tried to determine whether a particular program was populated by individuals with particular academic philosophies, and to validate an instrument developed to measure expectations. The analysis of the research proceeded in two major phases. The first phase involved factor analyses of the preliminary instruments and analysis of variance involving 3 basic graduate programs in the Department of Administration in which the subjects of the study were enrolled, and the degree of satisfaction which they experienced with their programs. The second phase involved intercorrelations and master factor analyses of the derived factor scales and the other unanalyzed data. These analyses involved a larger and more varied sample. (AF)
