The Allport, Vernon, Lindzey Study of Values reported norms were compared with scores from a sample from three midwest liberal arts colleges. The total college group consisted of 440 Ss, 183 males and 257 females. The individual samples showed both resemblances to and differences from each other and the appropriate sex norms, when they were examined on the basis of the mean values obtained for each of the test's six variables and of the relative rank assigned to each. The composite group showed differences in amounts rather than ranks on the scales. It was concluded that the appropriateness of the Manual norms was not established by this survey, although it was tentatively predicted that large samples of females would probably rank the variables much the same as the norms.
