Attitudes Toward Hiring a Professional Couple: Results of aRecent Survey by Suzanne Pingree( Book )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
A questionnaire, sent to the chairperson of either the psychology or the sociology department of all colleges and universities in the United States, explored the extent and nature of attitudes about hiring Ph. D. couples in the same department. A total of 2,027 colleges and universities comprised the sample group; however, only 16 percent (329) returned the questionnaire. Results indicate that administrators who would oppose hiring a husband-wife team in the same department are in the minority, and that antinepotism policies and attitudes are no longer prevalent. The 33 percent of department chairpersons who did respond in the bottom third of the scale are a sizeable minority. It is possible that nearly a third of the time the Ph. D. couple will be greeted with a chairperson who at least actively opposes their candidacy for two positions in her/his department. Advantages and disadvantages to both the department and to the couple are indicated. (Mjm)
Does shorter mean easier to understand? : a study of comprehension of USA Today information stories by Renee Botta( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
A study tested the notion that information stories in "USA Today" are more readable because its editors shorten them by leaving out background details. It also examined whether readers comprehend as much from stories written in "USA Today" style as they do from stories written in the more traditional "New York Times" style. For the Readability Study seven readability formulas were applied to two stories reported in both papers. For the Reader Comprehension Study, 166 undergraduate subjects read either the "New York Times" or the "USA Today" versions of the stories. Results of the readability measures showed that both versions of the stories were at or above college level, but only the Fog index significantly discriminated between the versions of the stories, finding the "USA Today" version more readable in terms of sentence length and complexity. The comprehension study results showed that readers of the "USA Today" stories comprehend significantly less than do readers of the same stories in "New York Times" style. In contrast to arguments of "USA Today" editors, multiple regressions showed that newspaper use was negatively related to comprehension of "USA Today" stories. However, frequent and attentive reading of "hard news" stories is a predictor of better comprehension for "USA Today" stories, while "soft news" stories were related to better comprehension for "New York Times" stories. Findings suggest that "USA Today" editors may be placing reader comprehension at risk when they shorten analysis pieces by leaving out background.

A Developmental Study of the Attitudinal Effects of Nonsexist TelevisionCommericals Under Varied Conditions of Perceived Reality by Suzanne Pingree( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
To test the proposition that television content can teach sex-typed behaviors and attitudes, this study presented children of two ages (third grade and eighth grade) with one of two sets of television commercials. The first set contained women engaged in nontraditional occupations outside the home. The second set showed traditional women in their roles as housewives and mothers. The children's perceptions of the reality of the commercials were altered with instructions that the characters in the commercials were all real people (reality-set), that they were all acting (acting set), or that the commercials were just like ones always shown on television (no instructions). A control group that was not exposed to stimuli was included. Analysis of variance found that children's perceptions of reality were successfully manipulated with the instructions; younger children thought all content was more real; and the two sets of commercials had a significant differential impact on the attitudes of children about women only for groups that had been instructed about the reality of the actors. It was concluded that, in general, television can be a relevant source of information for sex-role socialization. (Author/TS)

A Developmental Exploration of the Fear of Success Phenomenon asCultural Stereotype by Robert Parker Hawkins( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This study explores the notion of "fear of success" as a function of cultural expectations rather than as an intrapsychic motive held by women. A total of 476 male and female students (including 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th graders) were tested on semantic differential scales to gauge their reactions to the success or failure of a woman or a man. It was expected that the woman would not be rated negatively for failure. It was also expected that younger children would be more dogmatic than older children in applying cultural stereotypes to these situations. The children respond on semantic differential scales to the cue of Anne (John) succeeding (failing) in medical school. The children rated a successful person as much happier than one who failed, but the sex of the person succeeding or failing was entirely irrelevant. However, the results were as predicted for niceness: a woman was somewhat less nice than a man when they both succeeded, but a man was much less nice when they both failed. There were no interactions with age of sex of the respondents. The results were interpreted to suggest that sex-role expectations are relevant to some attributes of individuals but not to others, and that these expectations are well-established as early as third grade.
