College Women's Value Orientations toward Family, Career, and Graduate School.
Battle, Ann; Wigfield, Allan
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v62 n1 p56-75 Feb 2003
Scales assessing intention to attend graduate school and family/career values were completed by 216 college women. Multiple regression analyses demonstrated that components of task value (intrinsic-attainment, utility, cost) predicted graduate study intentions. Strong career orientation was positively related to the valuing of graduate education. (Contains 29 references.) (SK)
