    Abstract

    Results from this comparative study showed that (a) American students gave more emphasis to achievement, competence, and conformity values and were more in favor of rewarding high achievers; (b) Australian students gave less emphasis to conformity values, rated prosocial values as higher in importance, and reported higher equalitarianism; (c) Canadian students gave less emphasis to affiliative contentment values. Gender differences were also obtained on the value, attitude, and self-esteem measures.
