Abstract

One hundred forty freshman students, 56 women and 84 men, were given the Iowa Home Adjustment Inventory. Confidential information was then obtained on thirty out-of-town students. Raters reported on only those whose student behavior was specifically known to them. Ten freshman women live in the Women's Dormitory. There is no men's dormitory, and all the men live either at their own homes or in private homes. This made the desired information not as easily obtainable as on a campus where more students live in dormitories. Furthermore, the conduct of the student who is living at home does not so easily reveal confirmation or rejection or an intense affection score. Thus the results do not pile up in a quantitative way as they would in an effective dormitory system. But only the positive objective behavior data are here presented. The present study was conducted to evaluate the Iowa Home Adjustment Inventory by comparing student test scores with actual behavior in college.
