[Analysis of Carnegie Commission Survey Data].
Olson, Paul A.
Study Commission Newsletter, v2 n5 Jan 1975
This report contains analyses and interpretations by the Study Commission of data gathered by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education and the American Council on Education. Although the study was completed in 1970, there were many data tapes which had not been previously analyzed--particularly those dealing with teacher education. Items based on the total undergraduate sample were first analyzed in relation to data from all education majors. The sample was then analyzed to obtain responses for all teacher candidates. The sample was further divided into elementary and secondary teacher candidates, and the total group was then divided into freshmen and seniors. Some of the areas covered by the survey included (a) student attitudes toward professional training, (b) authoritarian attitudes in students, (c) changes in student attitudes, and (d) student attitudes concerning student input. The document also includes information on the extent of the survey and on subsamples used. (PB)
