The articles in this volume indicate that typological research on college students has been around for about half a century and has a strong presence in the literature on college students.

Cabrera, Nolan L. – New Directions for Institutional Research, 2011
Immediately after the election of a person of color to the presidency, the idea of being "postracial" seeped into the national media, essentially claiming that racism was over.

Pike, Gary R. – New Directions for Institutional Research, 2011
In this chapter, the author examines the adequacy and appropriateness of self-report data using the lens of construct validity (Kane, 2006; Messick, 1989).

Hughes, Richard L.; Jones, Steven K. – New Directions for Institutional Research, 2011
Some form of team-oriented work is employed in most, if not all, organizations today. It would seem, then, that an important role for higher education should involve developing critical teamwork skills among students so as to prepare them for success in life. This very point was highlighted in a 2009 poll conducted on behalf of the Association of…
