This study deals with problems which have arisen in attempts to measure Allport's construct, extrinsically valued religion. Results here tend not to confirm the homogeneity reported for Wilson's Extrinsic Religious Values Scale, nor has a revised form correlated well enough with the original to be considered equivalent. It is concluded that if the construct is basically valid, then considerable work remains to be done on measurement and concurrent definitional revision.
