Caple, Richard B.; Cox, Patti L.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v14 n1 p16-24 Mar 1989
College students (N=64), divided into 10 groups, completed the Personal Anticipations Questionnaire prior to group experience, Group Attitude Scale several times during group experience, and Group Satisfaction Scale following group experience. Results showed that group member expectations were related to group cohesion or attraction to group. Findings suggest that moderate levels of member expectancy are best. (NB)
