THE SAMPLE FOR THE STUDY CONSISTED OF 163 NEGRO MOTHER-CHILD PAIRS SELECTED FROM 3 SOCIOECONOMIC CLASSES BASED ON THE FATHER'S OCCUPATION AND THE PARENTS' EDUCATION. A FOURTH GROUP INCLUDED FATHER-ABSENT FAMILIES. THE MOTHERS WERE INTERVIEWED AT HOME AND THE MOTHERS AND CHILDREN WERE TESTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO WHEN THE CHILDREN WERE 4 YEARS OLD. FOLLOW-UP DATA WERE OBTAINED WHEN THE CHILDREN WERE 6 AND AGAIN WHEN THEY WERE 7. IN ORDER TO MEASURE CURIOSITY MOTIVATION, THE PLUTCHIK EXPLORATORY-INTEREST QUESTIONNAIRE WAS ADMINISTERED DURING ONE OF THE UNIVERSITY TESTING SESSIONS. THE QUESTIONNAIRE CONSISTS OF 58 ITEMS DESCRIBING ACTIVITIES, HALF OF WHICH ARE CLASSED AS EXPLORATORY AND HALF OF WHICH ARE CLASSED AS NONEXPLORATORY. THE MOTHER WAS READ EACH ITEM AND WAS ASKED IF SHE LIKED OR DISLIKED THE ACTIVITY. THE SUBJECTS WERE SCORED BY THE TOTAL NUMBER OF ACTIVITIES LIKED AND BY THE TOTAL NUMBER OF EXPLORATORY ACTIVITIES LIKED. THE COMPLETE SET OF PROJECT MANUALS COMPRISES PS 000 475 THROUGH PS 000 492.
