Student Attitude Inventory.
Aleamoni, Lawrence M.
A ten item questionnaire dealing with parental family income, the legalization of marijuana, pollution, and a volunteer army was administered to the entering freshman class on September 6, 1970. The results indicate that the freshmen tend to underestimate the actual earning power of their fellow students' families by approximately $1,800. However, their actual feelings about marijuana and the volunteer army were extremely close to their estimates of what the general freshman class felt about those particular topics. The most surprising result of this study was the remarkably high concern about the Federal Government's involvement in pollution control and yet the relatively low agreement that one of the prime causes of air pollution, the internal combustion engine, should be banned from the highways. Suggestions are made about using the questionnaire approach to establish student attitudes on current problems and topics. (Author)
