SOME RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN VALUES AND READING GAINS IN COLLEGE PROGRAMS.
KLING, MARTIN
TWO HUNDRED TWENTY-EIGHT COLLEGE STUDENTS ENROLLED IN A DEVELOPMENTAL READING PROGRAM PARTICIPATED IN A STUDY TO EXPLORE THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN VALUES, READING RATE, AND THE COMPREHENSION GAINS MADE IN DEVELOPMENTAL READING PROGRAMS BY COLLEGE STUDENTS. STUDENTS MET VOLUNTARILY FOR A TOTAL OF 16 HOURS OF INSTRUCTION. THE NELSON-DENNY READING TEST, FROM A, AND THE ALLPORT-VERNON-LINDZEY STUDY OF VALUES, THIRD EDITION, WERE ADMINISTERED AS PART OF THE PRETEST. THE NELSON-DENNY READING TEST, FORM B, WAS GIVEN AS PART OF THE POST-TEST. THE SIX BASIC TYPES OF MAN'S VALUES AS DEVELOPED BY THE ALLPORT-VERNON-LINDZEY SCALES ARE THE THEORETICAL, THE ECONOMIC, THE ESTHETIC, THE SOCIAL, THE POLITICAL, AND THE RELIGIOUS. THE ONLY VALUE SCALE SIGNIFICANT FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN IS THE CORRELATION BETWEEN RATE GAINED AND THEORETICAL. FOR COLLEGE MEN, RATE GAINS AND THEORETICAL VALUES WERE POSITIVELY CORRELATED AND RATE GAINS AND ESTHETIC WERE NEGATIVELY CORRELATED. FOR COLLEGE WOMEN, RATE GAINS AND THEORETICAL VALUES WERE POSITIVELY CORRELATED, WHILE COMPREHENSION GAINS AND ECONOMIC AND COMPREHENSION GAINS AND POLITICAL VALUES WERE NEGATIVELY CORRELATED. THE THEORETICAL, ECONOMIC, ESTHETIC, AND SOCIAL VALUES WERE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FOR BOTH SEXES, WHILE THE POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS VALUES DID NOT DISTINGUISH BETWEEN COLLEGE MEN AND WOMEN IN THIS SAMPLE. SEPARATE NORMS FOR THE SEXES FOR REPORTING VALUES AND READING SCORES ARE SUGGESTED. STATISTICAL DATA ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WILL APPEAR IN THE 1967 YEARBOOK OF THE NATIONAL READING CONFERENCE. (JM)
