A Profile of Relevant Attitudes, Perceptions and Aspirations of Young Micronesians. Volume I.
Broadbent, William A.
The primary purpose of this study was to identify and profile attitudes and evaluative semantic differentials evidenced by young people in the six districts of Micronesia. Data were collected using a questionnaire. Eight attitudinal dimensions were measured: support of school and school related values, support of United States policy in Micronesia, concepts of natural rights, present-future orientations, authoritarianism, individual-collectivistic orientations, sense of fair play, and achievement-ascriptions orientation. Semantic differentials were generated involving four areas; education, Micronesia, neighboring nation-states, and miscellaneous values. This volume of the research report presents background information, the study rationale, findings, and recommendations. The attitudinal inventory data and study time line are appended. (MK)
