Characteristics of High School Seniors as Related to College Attending Behavior. Pilot Project to Develop a Diagnostic Technique for High School Counselors.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational Education Research.
This study attempts to identify characteristics of college attenders as contrasted with nonattenders through the use of four carefully selected measurement instruments: (1) the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule (EPPS); (2) the College Image Scale (CIS); (3) the Senior Survey Questionnaire; and (4) the Regents Scholarship Examination. These instruments were selected because they either required no individual administration, scheduled test period, or minitored facility, or because in the case of the Regent's examination its annual en masse administration in most New York state schools. The author was seeking a model which would not add appreciably to the work of counselors. Numerous differences were found between attenders and nonattenders using the selected instruments. The author suggests that counselors administer those sections of the EPPS and CIS which measure the discriminating variables. It is concluded that this project has clearly suggested a model which may be of use to counselors in giving needed individual attention through expedient time utilization. (TL)
