Academic Motivation And Youth-Culture Involvement, John A. Finger Jr.

The increased pressure for enrolment forces more and more colleges to be selective in their admissions procedures. This selection is customarily achieved through the use of aptitude tests combined with a student's high school record.

As a result, admission is denied to students with low academic motivation.
