Title:A comparison study of 12th grade students' college anticipations, aspirations, and college preparatory measures
Short Description:The purpose of this study was to assess the differences in educational aspirations and educational anticipations between four groups of high school seniors and to identify college preparatory measures achieved by the four groups.
Annotation:The purpose of this study was to assess the differences in educational aspirations and educational anticipations between four groups of high school seniors and to identify college preparatory measures achieved by the four groups. This study also served as a follow-up study of AVID and GEAR UP 10th graders, which allowed researchers to measure whether any changes in aspirations and anticipations within the four groups occurred between the 10th and 12th grade. Key Findings: •Significant differences in educational anticipations were found among the four groups of high school seniors, and a change in students' anticipations occurred between the 10th and 12th grade. •There were no differences in educational aspirations among the four groups. •The intervention programs, GEAR UP and AVID, provided students with access to benefits of social and cultural capital that may have otherwise not been available to them.
