Abstract: The purpose of the study was to compare the orientation to work values and the level of career maturity of community college transfer and native students at the University of Florida and to determine the relationship between work values and career maturity. It was hypothesized that no differences would exist in either the work values, as measured by the Work Values Inventory (WVI) , or the career maturity, as measured by the Career Maturity Inventory (CMI) Attitude Scale of transfer and native students as a function of (a) sex, (b) Upper Division college, (c) father's occupation, (d) mother's occupation, (e) cumulative college grade-point average (GPA, (f) age, or (g) parents' yearly income. It was also hypothesized that no relationship would exist between the work values and career maturity of transfer students, native students or both groups combined. Alphabetized lists with the current local addresses were obtained from the Registrar and Admissions Office for (1) all juniors who had entered an Upper Division collegeat the University of Floridafor the first time Fall Quarter 1975 directly from Florida community colleges and (2) all first-quarter juniors in Upper Division in the 1975 Fall Quarter who had been enrolled as full-time students only at the University of Florida. From the lists 150 transfer and 150 native students were randomly selected to be subjects in this study. Each subject was mailed a large envelope containing a letter, a questionnaire, the Work Values Inventory (WVI) , the Career Maturity Inventory (CMI) Attitude Scale, and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Usable data were returned by 62.7% of the transfer students and 60.7% of the native students. The analysis of the data was accomplished through the use of the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) computer subprograms. Independent t tests were used to compare the mean \«A7I scores and the mean CMI scores of transfer and native students. Both WVI and CMI scores of the two groups as a function of age and of cumulative college GPA were determined by finding the Pearson product-moment correlations, employing the z' transformation with the correlations, then finding the significance of difference between the correlations of transfers and of natives. Pearson product-moment correlations and their respective significance were also used to determine the relationship of WVI scores to CMI scores. The difference between the native and transfer students' WVI scores as well as the difference in their CMI scores as a function of sex. Upper Division college in which they were enrolled, parents' yearly income, father's occupation, and mother's occupation was determined through analyses of variance. The level of significance was .05 for all analyses. Few differences were found in the demographic characteristics, work values, or career maturity of transfer and native students. Transfer and native students were found to differ markedly only in socioeconomic status (with transfers being lower) , and the only significant differences in work values of the two groups were a function of socioeconomic status. Significant differences were found on the Associates scale of the WVI as a function of father's occupation and group (whether native or transfer) combined, and on the Creativity, Management, Security, and Independence scales as a function of mother's occupation and group combined. No significant differences were found in the CMI scores of transfer and native students as a function of any of the variables examined. The work values and career maturity of the subjects were found to be significantly related. A significant negative relationship was determined to exist between the Management scale of the \W1 and CMI score for transfer students, native students, and both groups combined.
