A Survey of Plans for Education and Careers [of the Iowa High School Class of 1975)].
College Entrance Examination Board, Evanston, IL.
Forty-nine Iowa high schools enrolling almost 12 percent of the 1974-75 seniors participated in a survey of career and educational goals to discover the postsecondary plans of high school seniors and to lead to improved services to the students. The survey consisted of a 68-item questionnaire, augmented by 20 local questions; 5,766 questionnaires were returned. A description, extensive tabulation, and comparison of the participating schools are given in terms of location, size of the senior class, percentage of senior class entering postsecondary education, number of guidance counselors, and the majority race enrolled in the school. Other areas surveyed and tabulated were: students and their plans for further college education; their jobs and working patterns; their academic performance in high school; their self-perception on career related characteristics; and the role of the family's income, working status, and attitude towards post-high school activity. The results of the survey are analyzed and discussed. A list of participating schools, letters to the schools, survey of local questions, and survey instructions are appended. (Author/EC)
