MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to investigate value orientations between sorority and dormitory women on the value scale of independence, sociability, academic achievement, and intellectualism. The subjects used in this study were the 1971 spring pledge class and the graduating sorority seniors of the four sororities at Wisconsin State University ? La Crosse. These subjects were matched by academic major and year in school to a randomly selected dormitory sample of underclassmen and seniors. The revised form of the intellectualism scale, the sociability scale which consisted of social skills and status scale of the Scott Value Scales were issued to the above subjects. The questionnaire was intended to measure any differences which may exist between the two major groups or the four subgroups. A two by two factorial analysis of the variance was used to determine any differences between Greek and dormitory students. Dunn?s multiple comparison procedure was utilized in determining differences between the subgroups. Results of the statistical analysis indicated no significant relationship at the alpha equal .05 on any of the value scales. Pledges were significantly lower on the independence scale than dormitory underclassmen at alpha equal .10. There was a significant difference between underclassmen and upperclassmen higher on independence. Greek students were significantly higher on the sociability scale at alpha equal .25. There was no significant difference between Greeks and dormitory students on the academic achievement or intellectualism scale.
