PROGRESSIVE CHANGES IN EDUCATIONAL VALUES OVER FOUR YEARS OF COLLEGE. THE PLATTSBURGH STUDY, PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS' VALUES, NEEDS AND EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, REPORT 4.
JOHNSON, S.W.
AS PART OF A LONGITUDINAL STUDY TO DETERMINE IF CHANGES IN A STUDENT'S VALUES, NEEDS, AND EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES ARE MORE ORDERLY AND PREDICTABLE THAN PRIOR RESEARCH HAS INDICATED, THE POE INVENTORY OF VALUES WAS ADMINISTERED TO 225 STUDENTS DURING EACH OF THEIR COLLEGE YEARS. THIS INSTRUMENT YIELDS EIGHT SCORES -- (1) AESTHETIC, (2) INTELLECTUAL, (3) MATERIAL, (4) POWER, (5) SOCIAL CONTACT, (6) RELIGIOUS, (7) PRESTIGE, AND (8) HUMANITARIAN. IT WAS FOUND THAT (A) INTELLECTUAL, PRESTIGE, RELIGIOUS, AND SOCIAL CONTACT VALUES SHOWED THE GREATEST CHANGE. (B) SOCIAL CONTACT VALUES SHOWED THE GREATEST DECREASES. (C) SEX DIFFERENCES IN VALUE CHANGE WERE NOT LARGE. (D) ELEMENTARY EDUCATION STUDENTS' VALUES WERE MOST VARIABLE AND SECONDARY EDUCATION STUDENTS' VALUES WERE LEAST VARIABLE. (E) CHANGES IN VALUES TESTED EVERY 14 MONTHS OVER THE FOUR-YEAR PERIOD DID NOT SHOW EQUAL AMOUNTS OF CHANGE FOR EACH YEAR. (F) DIFFERENT VALUE AREAS DO NOT CHANGE AT THE SAME RATE OR IN THE SAME DIRECTION. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT (1) MORE VALUE CHANGE IS PRESENT DURING THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE THAN PREVIOUS RESEARCH HAS INDICATED, AND (2) A PARALLEL STUDY WITH NON-COLLEGE INDIVIDUALS IS NECESSARY TO CHECK THE ASSUMPTION THAT THESE VALUE CHANGES ARE A FUNCTION OF COLLEGE EXPERIENCE ALONE. THIS REPORT IS PART OF THE PLATTSBURGH STUDY, "PROGRESSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF STUDENTS' VALUES, NEEDS AND EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES." (AW)
