Abstract : The document is concerned with an inverse factor study of the intercorrelations among students over a series of items concerned with motivation to work in college. Ten motivational types are noted. Seven of these types were found in a previous study to have some reasonable amount of validity for the college criteria. This report describes the cross-validation of items and scales of items that were assembled to measure these seven types. Multiple regression was used to evaluate three of the seven factors as useful predictors when used in addition to SAT and high-school rank. (Author)
