Career Self-Appraisals and Educational Aspirations of Diverse First-Year College Students
Gasser, Courtney E.
College Student Journal, v47 n2 p364-372 Jun 2013
This study examined the career, social, and academic self-appraisals and educational aspirations of first-year college students of diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds. Participants included 72 first-year students of Black, Asian, and White ethnicities. Career self-appraisals were significantly different for Black and Asian students when compared to White students, and subsequent analysis revealed that White students had higher career self-appraisals. Also, educational aspirations were significantly predicted by academic self-appraisals. Practice implications are explored.
