Development of a Values Inventory for Grades 1 Through 3 in Five Ethnic Groups: Preliminary Interview.
Guilford, Joan S.; And Others
A structured preliminary interview for children grades 1 to 3 was devised to obtain information on the kinds of situations relevant to seven hypothesized value dimensions based on the following categories of needs: 1) physiological, 2) safety, 3) love, 4) esteem, 5) aesthetic, 6) self-actualization, and, 7) aggression. A total of 23 children from a primarily Negro private nursery school and from a Jewish nursery school participated in the try-out groups. The interview itself consisted of 53 open-ended questions, phrased in such a way as to elicit from the child an instrumental value in response to the terminal value given in the question. Each of the interviews was tape-recorded so that data could be accurately noted. Some warm-up questions were included to establish rapport between the examiner and the child. Other questions were intended to reveal the children's impressions of all aspects of the seven hypothesized value dimensions. See TM 000 613 and 000 615. (CK)
