Interrelationship of Disabled College Student's Attributes, Program Use, and Study Attitudes.
Quatrano, Louis A.
This study examines how 105 disabled college students' characteristics (i.e. age, disability, and sex) and use of supportive services relate to self-reported study habits and methods as measured by the Study Attitudes and Methods Survey. Results reveal the post-test scores drop by about 10% regardless, and drop again by about 4% for every 10 points on the usage index, but increase about 10% for every 10 years increase in age. The percentage of change was found to be independent of sex and the disability index. Implications for personnel involved in working with disabled college students are discussed. (Author)
