Psychological Characteristics of Non-Completers: An Affective Evaluation Report. General Report No. 1.
Conrad, Rowan W.
In an attempt to evaluate and minimize the dropout problem 26 noncompleting, two-parent families leaving the Mountain-Plains program prematurely were selected for study on the basis of availability of entry scores on the Personal Orientation Inventory (POI) and the 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire, Form E (16PF). Scores for this group were compared to entry norms for the overall Mountain-Plains student population in an attempt to examine questions related to dropout characteristics. Dropouts were distinguished from norms by a preponderance of negative descriptions for both males and females, somewhat more so for females. Implications of these findings for the Mountain-Plains program are briefly explored. (SA)
