The Many Faces of College Success and Their Nonintellective Correlates: The Published Literature Through the Decade of the Sixties. Monograph No. 15.
Lenning, Oscar T.; And Others
This document addresses itself to changing social conditions or, more specifically, to the conditions under which nonintellective success is defined by our society. In this document success is viewed as: (1) intellectual development; (2) personality development and adjustment; (3) motivational and aspirational development; (4) social development; (5) aesthetic-cultural development; (6) moral, philosophical, and religious development; and (7) other types of college success, including post-college success, development of student power, development in basic educational skills, benefits to society, and miscellaneous criteria. Great care was taken to make this literature coverage as complete as possible. However, this was not the primary purpose of the study. Some studies judged by the authors to be of lower quality than others are not annotated for reasons such as unique approach, stimulating and thought-provoking conclusions, experimentation with specific criteria or predictor measures formerly overlooked, results unlike those other similiar studies, utilization of uncommon statistics, etc. Furthermore, relevant research at the elementary and secondary level was included in the review if it seemed to have definite applicability to college students.
