Attitudes Toward Selected Stimuli: Commonality and Differences Within and Between Two Dissimilar High Risk Black College Groups.
Kapel, David E.
An exploratory study was conducted to determine attitudes and/or semantic structures toward college related (Professors, Name of Institution, Afro-American Courses) and personal (Black Students, White Students, Me-Myself) stimuli within and between 2 dissimilar, all male, high-risk, Afro-American College groups at 2 institutions (Temple University, N=16; Glassboro State College, N=23). Osgood's semantic differential technique was applied to both groups. Findings suggest that there was a great deal of commonality between the 2 groups in terms of their attitudes toward the stimuli. There was no significant institutional or dimensional main effects, but stimuli main effect reached significance. Post Hoc tests were used to look at differences. Black pride and identification were the strongest stimuli. (Author)
