Differences Between High Ability Sophomores and Sophomores in General at the University of Maryland. Research Report No. 7-70.
Collins, Anne M.; Sedlacek, William E.
A study was conducted at the University of Maryland to determine if high ability sophomores differed from sophomores in general on their responses to the 1969 University Student Census (USC). The responses of 359 high ability sophomores, defined as those with Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores over 599 on both Verbal and Mathematics, were compared with USC responses of 6,293 sophomores who represented about 99 percent of the class. Responses of the high ability group were also included in the overall group. High ability sophomores tended to live more often in residence halls, enjoyed academic work more, had higher aspirations for graduate study, were more critical of the university, were more positive in their attitudes toward recruiting black students, and saw more racism at the university than sophomores in general.
