Abstract : This is a literature review and theory paper which takes a holistic approach to the problem of the measurement of behavioral change, particularly changes in racist behavior. A general conceptual model of behavior in 'ecological' perspectives is presented. This is followed by a presentation of the application of this model to racist behavior based upon a theory of racist behavior. The sources of behaviors which can serve as criteria are described. A demonstration of the application of the use of the theoretical model of behavior to sort random behaviors of the categories is presented. Finally, the use of the classification of sorted behaviors as the basis for the development of observation instruments is shown. (Author)
