Expectations of Black and White University Freshmen.
Miyares, Javier; And Others
The research literature is full of studies about attitudes of black students toward white students and vice versa, but more often such studies lack generalizable measures and contain methodological problems. This study was concerned with a standardized measure of university student perceptions and expectations (College and University Environment Scales CUES), thought to be appropriate for administering to black and white freshmen attending a large, predominantly white university. Means and standard deviations and the 66 plus -33 minus scale scores were reported for each sample. Differences between black and white CUES scale scores were determined using t at the .05 level. Black freshmen expected more Practicality and Propriety and less Awareness using the mean scoring method. Similar results occurred with the 66 -33 minus method except Propriety just missed being significant. A discussion of the results was presented and research questions suggested. (Author)
