The Relationship of Parental Reinforcement, Parental Modeling, Need Achievement, and Need Affiliation to the Type of Graduate Program Enrollment of Females.
Lyons, Linda
The purpose of this study was to determine if female graduate students in traditional programs could be distinguished from female graduate students in nontraditional programs on the basis of parental reinforcement, parental modeling, need achievement, and need affiliation. Paternal and maternal reinforcement scales, which assessed parental support for academic and career goals, and a demographic form that elicited information on parental education and occupation were devised for the study. These measures and the achievement and affiliation scales of Jackson's Personality Research Form were administered to the two groups of female students. Results indicated that there was a significant difference between the groups. Students were differentiated primarily according to several parental variables. (Author/MSE)
