Development of University Students' Values in Ten Years. Follow Up Study.
Kazem, Mohamed I.
Trends in values development over 10 years were studied with university students/graduates of the University of Qatar, which is located in the Western Arabian Gulf. In order to define and identify values, content analysis of student autobiographies was conducted for 60 students in their last 2 academic years. Autobiographies by each student were completed in 1957, 1962, and 1967. After analyzing content and validity and reliability, percentiles for students' values were obtained, and values were classified on the variables of sex, time, and sex-time interaction. The percentage ratio of each value composite was compared after rank ordering. The following types of values were assessed: moral, social, egotistic, security, physical, recreational, practical, and cognitive. The following value categories were given less status in the later stages of the research than in the early stages: egotism, security, physical, recreational, and cognitive. Male students ranked higher than female students in the physical and practical value categories. In addition, significant differences were found in the sex-time interaction for the social and physical value categories. (SW)
