Influences of Student Goals for College on Freshman-Year Quality of Effort and Growth.
Kaufman, Mary Ann; Creamer, Don G.
Journal of College Student Development, v32 n3 p197-206 May 1991
Tested a conceptual model of influences from students' goals for college on freshman-year growth. Degree aspiration level was a significant influence on intellectual gains, and social goals surpassed both degree aspiration level and career certainty as influences on personal-social gains. These variables influenced outcomes in part because they influenced the quality of effort that students invested in freshman-year experiences. (LLL)
