Development of the Values Arrangement List

The VAL has a long and rich history spanning five decades of research and practice. During 1960s the Rev. Dr. Edward S. Golden played an integral role pioneering and popularizing the use and research/development of other global recognized values assessments. Golden tasked David Saunders with developing the advanced scoring process needed to make the theory of values formulated by values researcher and theorist Milton Rokeach, Ph.D., reliable and useful. Building upon that base, John Patrick Golden, EdD. carried the vision forward.
