A Constructive Development Approach to Assessing Variations within a Community College Population
Boyer, Timothy R.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v31 n10 p781-795 Oct 2007
This study utilized a constructive-developmental approach to accomplish 3 purposes: to create a developmental stage profile for a population of students attending a single community college, to analyze variations within and between subpopulations, and to explore the implications for administrators and planners seeking to provide supportive environments for different populations of students. The resulting profile indicated a wide range of variation within the overall population and significant variations between traditional and non-traditional age students. Implications for educational programming and supportive services were identified by using a constructive-developmental approach as an interpretive framework. (Contains 1 table.)
