Students asked to think about their near future as adults differed from students asked to think about their future as adults or about their far future as adults. Imagining a near future as an adult increased attention to schoolwork but imagining a future or a far future as an adult did not. SUM M A RY Children and parents value education; they expect and aspire to be college-bound. These values, expectations, and aspirations are important but not enough, resulting in a leaky educational pipeline for society and an aspiration-attainment gap for children.

As a result neither what was specifically intended to happen nor what actually did happen can be ascertained. A Focus on Education 31 Even when manual and fidelity materials are available, programs fail to provide an empirical test of their process model, so that it is unclear whether the program, even if delivered as intended, has its effects through the predicted mechanism. Knowing this may seem pragmatically unnecessary, but it turns out to be pragmatically essential. Without a test of the process model, practitioners and policy makers will not know which pieces of the intervention as delivered actually had the expected effects.

People may know that failing to say that they expect and want to go to college will be viewed negatively, so they do not do it. Finally, consider questionnaire structure. A typical questionnaire asks the same question about educational attainment twice, first asking about desired attainment and then about expected attainment. Using a closed-ended response format increases the efficiency of data collection but systematically shifts responses (Schwarz & Oyserman, 2001). In this case, having considered how far in school one wants to go (the first question), respondents may have their desired goal on their minds and not probable impediments along the way.
