Abstract:

The present study was under taken to assess guidance needs of male and female adolescents in urban and rural areas. The study was conducted on 200 adolescents (100 urban and 100 rural) of Government Senior Secondary Schools of Ludhiana district. The sample was further equally distributed over two genders (100males and 100 females). For the assessment of guidance need, Grewal guidance need inventory (1997) was used. The result revealed that in rural sample, males and females showed non significant difference in all dimensions of guidance needs. Irrespective of locale, no significant gender difference was found in the dimensions of guidance needs except physical guidance needs, where females displayed more need than males. Rural respondents required more guidance in physical, social, psychological, vocational and overall guidance than urban adolescents. Academic achievement has significant positive correlation with guidance needs.


Keywords: adolescents, guidance needs, physical, psychological, social, vocational, academic achievements.
