The Values Inventory for Children.
Guilford, Joan S.; And Others
The inventory is designed to measure seven dimensions of value based on seven categories of needs: physiological; safety; love; esteem; aesthetic; self-actualization; and aggression. Each item was pretested and checked for validity and reliability. Two test formats, each containing 30 items, were prepared: a single picture format in which the child responds on a graded scale of like-dislike by circling the face that describes his feelings; and a dual picture format in which the child draws a line under the picture he likes best. Approximately 70 minutes is required for administering the inventory. Directions are available in both Spanish and English. Eight factors are named and described: Social Conformity, Academic/Health, Me First, Masculinity, Adult Closeness, Sociability, Aesthetic, and Asocial Behavior. Statistical analyses for the total sample and the individual ethnic groups are provided. See also TM 000 613-614. (CK)
