Canonical Correlation Analysis of POI and 16PF Scales for a Rural Disadvantaged Population: An Affective Evaluation Report. Counseling Services Report No. 17.
Conrad, Rowan W.; Pollack, Robert M.
The report gives the results of a canonical correlation analysis of the 16 Personality Factor Questionnaire, Form E (16PF) and Personal Orientation Inventory (POI) scores for 299 Mountain-Plains students. The focus of the study was on population characteristic identification emerging from the canonical sets of the merged instrument descriptions. Two tables show canonical R's on the 16PF and POI scales for Mountain-Plains students and weights for canonical factors from the POI and 16PF scales. Results indicate considerable mutual validity for the scale descriptions. They are also seen to define generally unfavorable types in the population surveyed. The basic value of the study is confirmatory as regards program design in, and program emphasis on, affective development. A secondary value will be assisting counselors in test interpretation. The authors indicate that the report should be viewed as a data summary since the format and indepth consideration for a formal research report have not yet been pursued. (NH)
