How Do Community College Transfer and Occupational Students Differ?
Brue, Eldon J.; And Others
This paper reports on an examination of the differences between and among community college students enrolled in transfer and occupational programs. Data were gathered from a sample of 924 full-time freshman and sophomore students enrolled in transfer and occupational programs in three Iowa community colleges in the spring of 1968. Seventy-nine variables were examined among students grouped by sex and program. Men differed on 44 counts, with transfer men holding higher mean scores than occupational men on 35 of 44 variables, while women differed on only 15 variables. Differences were reported regarding: personality, various competencies, interests, academic aptitude, educational aspiration, self-reported characteristics, socioeconomic background, and other factors. Important implications for junior colleges as well as 4-year colleges and for counselors in secondary schools are noted. (Author/CA)
