INVESTIGATION AND MEASUREMENT OF THE SOCIAL VALUES GOVERNING INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS AMONG ADOLESCENT YOUTH AND THEIR TEACHERS, PARTS I AND II.
GARDNER, ERIC F.; THOMPSON, GEORGE G.
AN INVESTIGATION DIRECTED TOWARD THE CONSTRUCTION OF SEVERAL SCALES TO MEASURE THE PRESCRIPTION OR "OUGHT TO" VALUES JUDGED TO BE IMPORTANT IN THE INTERPERSONAL RELATIONS OF ADOLESCENT BOYS AND GIRLS WAS PRESENTED. THE PRIMARY EMPHASIS WAS ON MEASUREMENT. LITTLE ATTENTION WAS GIVEN BY PSYCHOLOGISTS TO THE AREA OF VALUES. IT IS HOPED THAT, BY CONSTRUCTING SCALES OF MEASUREMENT, FURTHER INQUIRY WILL BE STIMULATED. THE TESTS CAN BE DIVIDED IN FOUR CATEGORIES--(1) INSTRUMENTS DESIGNED TO MEASURE THE BROAD PRESCRIPTION OR "OUGHT TO" VALUES THAT ARE PERCEIVED AS DESIRABLE AND NECESSARY FOR THE "GOOD" LIFE. (2) INSTRUMENTS DESIGNED TO MEASURE MAJOR ETHICAL-MORAL-SOCIAL VALUES. (3) INSTRUMENTS DESIGNED TO MEASURE SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS JUDGED IMPORTANT TO THE ACQUISITION AND FUNCTIONING OF VALUES, AND (4) INSTRUMENTS DESIGNED TO MEASURE RESTRAINTS ON VALUE VIOLATIONS. THE STANDARD SAMPLE WAS A LARGE GROUP OF UPPER, LOWER, AND MIDDLE-CLASS ADOLESCENTS FROM URBAN AND SUBURBAN AREAS. ALTHOUGH THE USEFULNESS AND VALIDITY OF THE TESTS DEVELOPED IN THIS INVESTIGATION WILL ONLY GRADUALLY BE REVEALED, AS A FIRST STEP, THE RESPONSES OF SEVERAL DIFFERENT SOCIAL CULTURAL GROUPS WERE COMPARED. EXAMPLES OF THESE SAMPLES ARE DELINQUENTS, SOUTHERN NEGRO BOYS AND GIRLS, FORMOSAN AND AMISH ADOLESCENTS. THE VALIDITY IS TENTATIVELY PROVEN IF TEST RESULTS MEASURE UP TO THEORETICAL EXPECTATIONS.
