TO DEVELOP AND PARTIALLY VALIDATE A QUESTIONNAIRE TO MEASURE VALUES RELEVANT TO GOOD CITIZENSHIP AND TO PREPARE A LARGE-SCALE PROJECT TO STUDY VALUE CHANGE IN A VARIETY OF COLLEGES.
PERLOE, SIDNEY I.
THIS RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED TO PRODUCE A QUESTIONNAIRE THAT WOULD BE USEFUL FOR EXAMINING THE DEGREE TO WHICH PRESENT DAY COLLEGE ATTENDANCE FACILITATES THE DEVELOPMENT OF VALUE ORIENTATIONS LIKELY TO ENCOURAGE FUTURE GOOD CITIZENSHIP. A SECOND PURPOSE WAS TO BROADEN THE DOMAIN OF VALUES GENERALLY STUDIED BY SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGISTS TO INCLUDE THE AREA CONCERNED WITH THE BALANCE BETWEEN IDENTIFICATION WITH GROUPS, ON THE ONE HAND, AND INDIVIDUALISM ON THE OTHER. A POOL OF OPINION AND VALUE STATEMENTS BELIEVED TO VARY ALONG THE DIMENSION OF INDIVIDUALISM OR GROUP IDENTIFICATION WAS COLLECTED. SEVERAL FORMS OF A SOCIAL VALUES QUESTIONNAIRE WERE CONSTRUCTED USING THOSE ITEMS. ALL THE FORMS REQUIRED THE RESPONDENT TO RATE THE EXTENT OF HIS AGREEMENT OR DISAGREEMENT WITH THE OPINION AND VALUE STATEMENTS DEALING WITH FOUR CLUSTERS OF RELATED DIMENSIONS. THEY WERE THE EVALUATION OF IDENTIFICATION WITH GROUPS, PROBLEMS CREATED BY THE COORDINATION AND REGULATION OF THE ACTIVITIES OF GROUP MEMBERS, REACTIONS TO UNJUST OR ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIORS OF OTHERS, AND THE CONSIDERATION OF THE WELFARE OF OTHERS. AFTER A TEST-RETEST PROCEDURE AND A COMPARISON OF THE VALUES SCORES OF THE TEST SAMPLE WITH TWO GROUPS OF PEACE CORPS TRAINEES AND A GROUP OF UNDERGRADUATES AT A CONSERVATIVELY ORIENTED MEN'S COLLEGE, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE SOCIAL VALUES QUESTIONNAIRE DID CONVEY INFORMATION ABOUT THE ORIENTATIONS IT WAS DESIGNED TO MEASURE. FURTHER WORK WAS NEEDED, HOWEVER, TO CLARIFY THE FACTORIAL STRUCTURE OF THE DOMAIN BEING ASSESSED BEFORE THE INSTRUMENT COULD BE USED IN LARGE-SCALE STUDIES OF THE EFFECT OF COLLEGE ATTENDANCE ON VALUES RELEVANT TO GOOD CITIZENSHIP.
