Williams, John E.
This report provides detailed technical information concerning the Preschool Racial Attitude Measure II (PRAM II) a method for assessing the attitudes of pre-literate children toward light- and dark-skinned individuals. Several major changes were involved in the PRAM II revision: (1) the length was doubled, (2) the general artistic quality of the stimulus materials was improved and differential hair color of the figures was removed, and (3) the revised measure can be used to test both sex-role and racial identification. Information provided in the report includes a brief summary and bibliography of studies done using the PRAM I procedure; a description of the PRAM II test materials; descriptions of the subject groups and procedures employed in the 1970-71 standardization study; a summary of the findings of this study; and some general comments on the current status of the PRAM II procedure. Appendixes included. (Author/AJ)
