A Study of Black University Student Attitudes on Three Attitude Scales.
Lazar, Alfred L.; And Others
Examined in 60 black undergraduates were the effects of age and sex on attitudes toward the handicapped, attitudes toward instructional goals, and social adjustment. Ss ranged in age from 18 to 42 years and were administered the following scales: Attitude Towards Handicapped Individuals Scale, Preferred Student Characteristic Scale, and the Is of Identity Test. No significant differences were found between black male and female students or among age groups on the three attitude instruments. As a group, SS were accepting of the handicapped, were above average in social adjustment, and were directed toward cognitive types of instructional goals. (DB)
