Abstract

EXAMINED THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EXPRESSED MOTIVES FOR ATTENDING COLLEGE AND SELECTED PLAN, ATTITUDE, PERFORMANCE, AND DEMOGRAPHIC VARIABLES. 849 MALE AND 830 FEMALE STUDENTS WERE SURVEYED DURING FRESHMAN REGISTRATION AND ADDITIONAL DATA WAS COLLECTED OVER A 3-YR. PERIOD. USING LINEAR VS. NONLINEAR BIVARIATE REGRESSION ANALYSIS, NUMEROUS SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIPS WERE FOUND BETWEEN EACH OF 13 REPORTED DETERMINANT SCALES AND 17 SELECTED VARIABLES. WHEN THE SELECTED VARIABLES WERE COMBINED IN A MULTIVARIATE PREDICTION EQUATION, CORRELATIONS WITH THE DETERMINANT SCALES WERE GENERALLY SIGNIFICANT BUT MODERATE.
