Title
The Assessment of Religiosity in Evangelical College Students and Its Relationship to Prior Family Religious Involvement
Abstract

The problems investigated in this paper are (a) the discovery of the relationships between the scales of religiosity developed by Glock and Stark (1970) and by Allport and Ross (1967), and (b) an examination of the relationship between the involvement of the S's family in religious activities and the religious orientation he subsequently adopted. College students with a religious orientation were employed. The results were that (a) a number of expected though far from perfect relationships were found between the two approaches to the assessment of religiosity, and (b) the scale used to assess family religious involvement was not predictive of the aspects of religiosity later measured. The implications of the study were discussed.
