Significant Collegiate Sources of Influence. Research Monograph Number Two.
Berry, Margaret C.; And Others
This study intends to contribute understanding to the relevant antecedents of student development by ascertaining what were salient influences on collegians' lives, or at least what are their perceptions of such influences. Influence may be those specifically tied to the university experience or those influences on their lives in a more general sense. Subjects were 831 seniors who graduated from the University of Texas in May, 1968. A questionnaire was sent to each subject, consisting of five instruments: (1) Biographical Information Form, (2) Sources of Influence Rating List, (3) Orientation Toward College, (4) College Attitude Rating Scales, and (5) Specific Sources of Influence. The major portion of the analyses consisted of computation of distribution statistics for each of the questions. A number of findings are presented under the categories of (1) characteristics of the sample, (2) sources of influence: overall trends, and (3) sources of influence peculiar to sub-groups of students.
