School Environment Preference Schedule--Seps.
Gordon, Leonard V.
The School Environment Preference Schedule (SEPS) measures, at the junior- and senior-high school level, "bureaucratic orientation," which is measured, at the adult level, by the Work Environment Preference Schedule (WEPS) of the same author. High scores typify the student who accepts and defers to authority, who prefers specific rules and guidelines, does not question expert judgment, and who seeks security in institutional and in-group identification. Scoring is on a Likert-type scale giving two points for "Strongly Agree" or "Agree," one point for "Undecided" or "Disagree," and zero points for "Strongly Disagree." The subconstructs measured are: self-subordination, uncriticalness, impersonalization, rule conformity, and traditionalism. Validation studies were conducted on American, Japanese, and Indian student samples. (BP)
