The Relationship of Various Aspects of Student Self Concept and Selected Personal Variables to Participation in Various Types of School Activities.
Yarworth, Joseph S.; Gauthier, William J., Jr.
This study was one of the first in the field of school activities to combine psychological variables with previously researched personal variables to attempt to answer questions raised by Rehberg in 1969. It produced psychological profiles of students who participate in school activities; it also dispelled the myth that school activities appeal equally to every student and that school activities are used by large numbers of students to complete their high school life experience. The information provided by the study can be used by researchers to explore the area of student involvement in school life and by administrators to assess who participates in their programs as they try to measure the success or failure of tax dollars spent yearly to develop extra- and co-curricular programs.
