Diverse Information-Gathering Methods in the Postsecondary Decision-Making Process.
Hamrick, Florence A.; Hossler, Don
Review of Higher Education, v19 n2 p179-98 Win 1996
A survey of 297 college-bound high school seniors and parents examined techniques for gathering information about postsecondary education and institutions. Students were designated as "highly diversified" or "less diversified" searchers; background characteristics and information-gathering behaviors of each were identified. High diversification was related to student certainty about proposed academic major and satisfaction with the student's chosen postsecondary institution. (Author/MSE)
