Summary

The Costerville Plans Project (Costerville being a pseudonym), sponsored by the Costerville Public Schools, Lincoln University, and the University of Pennsylvania, is concerned with the complex process of decision-making among black adolescents and with the influences of social change, counselor, teacher, and parent. The purpose of this pilot study is to examine how black secondary school students differ from their white peers in their life-planning and motivational patterns. Black and white males and females are compared on post-high school plans, occupational preference level, diversity of their occupational preferences, confidence in occupational hope, reported determinants of post-high school plans, and vocationally related concerns, interests, and values. Acceptable data were obtained for 36 black males, 47 black females, 137 white males, and 144 white females. Two instruments, the "You and Your Future" self-report inventory and the "Life Goals Inventory," were used. Black seniors, especially female, tended to choose high level occupational titles more than white seniors did. Among the total occupational preferences, black males showed the highest degree of diversification. "Material Value,""Academic Value," and "Altruistic Value" were three determinants important to all. Differences between groups on the "Life Goals" were most often a function of sex rather than race. (JM)
