Abstract

Veterans of World War II in considerable numbers have now been back on college campuses for several years. Concern over their proper academic and vocational disposition has prompted a substantial number of studies of their differential characteristics as compared with non-veterans. It has, for example, been rather well established through such investigations as those of Clark (1), Gowan (2), Taylor (5), et al, that veterans tend to be superior to non-veterans in academic achievement at the college level. Gowan has, in addition, pointed out that this state of affairs still obtains if scholastic aptitude be held constant. Owens (4), in a study of differential achievement by aptitude levels, has noted that veteran superiority appears to be more marked at the lower aptitude levels than at the upper; that is, that veterans less frequently fail when predicted upon an aptitude basis to do so.
