Values: A Symposium Report.
Ryan, T. A., Ed.
This publication brings together a set of four papers prepared for a symposium on values at the 1972 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association. The first paper, by Fred N. Kerlinger, establishes a rationale for values research. The discussion focuses on the definition of values, relationship between values and attitudes, measurement of values, and a theory of values. The next three papers are concerned with values research. The paper by Joan S. Guilford and Willa Gupta is concerned with the development of the Values Inventory for Children and the results from studying values of children in the primary grades in relation to ethnicity, teacher influence, sex, and age. The paper by David G. Ryans describes the research on values of elementary school children in Hawaii, in terms of differences across reference group, ethnic group, and socioeconomic status. The final paper, by Richard L. Gorsuch, describes a study of values of low- and middle-class white and black children. (Author)
