Which values?: Matching Schwartz's ten values constructs with the Nine Values for Australian Schooling

McMahon, Rachel E. (2015) Which values?: Matching Schwartz's ten values constructs with the Nine Values for Australian Schooling. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This study set out to determine which values are represented in the National Framework for Values Education in Australian Schools by matching Schwartz's ten values constructs to the Nine Values for Australian Schooling and examining the values orientations of contemporary young people, specifically Grade 8 girls from one State High School in South East Queensland. This was achieved by using the Schwartz Portrait Values Questionnaire (PVQ) as well as thematic analysis. Key findings were that there was a match between the Grade 8 girls values and some of the Nine Values however not others. Also, that not all of Schwartz's values are represented in the Nine Values for Australian Schooling, and certain values could be said to be omitted from the Framework and certain privileged.
