Abstract or Summary
  • This study examined certain educationally related attitudes held by a disadvantaged group of college freshmen with no previous experience at the college level. The study focused on changes in attitude exhibited by disadvantaged students enrolled in a program of study skills instruction at Oregon State University during the Fall term of 1972. In addition to the disadvantaged group, a group of ethnic minority freshmen and a group of average freshmen students were included in the study. Scores on the Teacher Approval and Educational Acceptance subscales of the Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes were used as measurement criteria for the determination of attitudes. Significant differences were found in the acceptance of common educational goals by students of differing ethnicity and differing grade point averages. The study skills instruction was found to have a significant effect only on the attitudes measured on the Teacher Approval subscale.
