Exploring the Measurement of Values

From: Volume I, Issue 2: Spring 1981 Pages 37-42


The author expresses his concern at the general absence of attention to measurable objects in the internalization of values and attitudes. He says Christian educators can learn from the secular world's recent progress in the measurement of attitudes. The behavioral theory and cognitive-field theory are introduced to sharpen the definition of attitudes. The author describes several methods of determining the existence or non-existence of attitudes, including observation of behavior and the self-report.
