Results of Fall 1975 Survey of Engineering Freshmen (Revised).
Ott, Mary Diederich
In this revised version of ED 127 248, the author has re-evaluated response data from a survey of 1680 selected engineering freshmen at 42 schools. The survey was an effort to identify distinguishing characteristics of the increasing numbers of women entering engineering programs. Respondents, who included men and women, were asked to give information about family and educational background, study habits, social life and extracurricular activities, work experience, political views, personality traits, financial status, career attitudes, factors influencing choice of curriculum, and future educOtional pl;ns. The introductory narrative section of the revised edition is identical to that of ED 127 248, describing how the author selected representative groups of students and how she weighted response data. Response data were reprogrammed due to an error in computer programming for the initial report. The result is that there are now more significant levels of difference between the responses of men and women than there were originally. The body of the report contains lists of comparative response data for each of the 230 questions on the survey. Significance of difference is indicated where there is none, where it is at the five percent level, and where it is at the one percent level. (AV)
