involving the other variables. All statistical compu-
tations necessary to this study were done by the North
Texas State University Computer Center. Two statistical
tests were used to check for relationships between student

had on vocational attitudes.
The findings of this study were revealed through the
testing of six null hypotheses and are limited to the
population used in this study. The conclusions which
