The Educational Attitudes and Learning Orientations of Undergraduates: A Pilot Study of Inter-Institutional Differences.
Morstain, Barry R.
This paper highlights the expressed educational attitudes and learning orientations of students who participated in a recent eight-college pilot study (total N = 4279). The Student Orientations Survey (S.O.S.), a ten-scale inventory developed by R.M. Gray and this writer, was used in this project in order to assess student's attitudes towards various curricular-instructional policies, student-faculty roles, participatory decision-making in academic affairs, and so on. Significantly different S.O.S. profiles were found for students at different types of institutions, as well as for students in dissimilar degree programs and a curricula at a given institution. Various implications of these data were discussed with attention given to the use of the research findings in promoting educational change on campus. (Author)
