Selected factors: (1) aspiration (2) interest (3) experience (4) satisfaction (5) ability and their relationship to four evaluated class projects: (1) flat pattern design techniques (2) gingham fit (3) blouse construction and fit (4) test scores, were investigated using 88 students enrolled in the 1971 Spring semester, Textiles, Clothing and Design 03, Course, in the College of Home Economics at the University of Nebraska.Student self-expressed rating scales were developed to measure aspiration, beginning interest, developed interest and satisfaction.A questionnaire was developed to indicate experience.Pearson’s product moment correlation and the Goodman Kruskal’s Tau were used to analyze the data.The alternative hypothesis, there is a relationship between selected factors: (1) aspiration (2) beginning interest (3) developed interest (4) experience (5) satisfaction (6) ability, and evaluated class projects:(1) design techniques (2) fit (3) construction (4) test scores, was partially supported.The factors: (1) aspiration (2) developed interest (3) experience ES, as indicated by number of years sewing experience (4) ability, showed a significant relationship at the established .05 level or above, to the class projects.
