Influence of identity processes on student behavior and occupational choice by Gilbert K Krulee( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Occupational choice, educational orientation, and student transfer in different university programs were studied. Questionnaire data were collected from male freshmen entering three different undergraduate schools--liberal arts, business, and engineering. A second questionnaire was administered to the same students during their senior year. Using data from the two questionnaires, the investigators evaluated certain changes in outlook that had taken place over the 3-year peiod. Another focus of the study was on those students who transferred from engineering to either liberal arts or business during the freshman year and on those students who left engineering as voluntary or involuntary dropouts. In addition to the questionnaires, interviews were conducted with transfer students and with students who persisted in each of the three schools. The students who transferred appeared strongly predisposed to do so even at the time of entrance. Factors that precipitated decisions to transfer were studied. With the aid of the second questionnaire, the investigators were able to determine how successful students were after they had transferred and in what ways they had changed over the 3-year period. In addition, a partial theory of occupational choice was developed based upon the concepts of identity and identification. The significance of occupational choice as one aspect of identity was discussed. (Rs)
