WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THESE SOCIAL QUESTIONS.
MCLEOD, DONNA L.; MEYER, HENRY J.
THE QUESTIONNAIRE CONTAINS 72 ITEMS DESIGNED TO ASSESS THE VALUE POSITIONS OF INDIVIDUALS ON NINE DIMENSIONS. THESE DIMENSIONS REPRESENT VALUE PROBLEMS OF RELEVANCE TO THE TOTAL AMERICAN SOCIETY AND OF PARTICULAR CONCERN TO PERSONS IN THE FIELD OF SOCIAL WORK AND RELATED FIELDS OF GENERAL SOCIAL WELFARE. VALUE POSITIONS, AND QUITE OFTEN VALUE CONFLICTS, WITH REGARD TO EACH OF THESE DIMENSIONS ARE DISCUSSED THROUGHOUT THE SOCIAL WORK LITERATURE. OF THE 72 ITEMS ON THE REVISED SOCIAL VALUES TEST, 59 WERE SELECTED FROM A PRIOR TEST AFTER AN ANALYSIS WAS MADE OF RESPONSES FROM 293 SOCIAL WORKERS. APPROXIMATELY ONE-THIRD OF THE SOCIAL WORKERS ARE MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SOCIAL WORKERS AND HOLD SOCIAL WORK DEGREES, ONE THIRD ARE GRADUATE STUDENTS IN SOCIAL WORK, AND ONE THIRD ARE PERSONS WHO ARE ENGAGED IN SOCIAL WORK BUT HOLD NO ADVANCED DEGREES. BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS ARE GIVEN OF EACH DIMENSION. SOME INVOLVE PRIMARILY COGNITIVE ORIENTATION, SOME ARE PRIMARILY EVALUATIVE, AND SOME COMBINE COGNITIVE AND EVALUATIVE VARIABLES.
