One hundred and three students responded to a version of the Implicative Meaning Instrument originally developed by Davis and Triandis 1965 for the measurement of the cognitive component of attitudes. In particular the students amended the probability that key concepts pertaining to minority group situations implied certain consequences or implicates. The subjects also evaluated these implicates. Two scoring models for the Implicative Meaning Instrument were investigated. Both showed significant concurrent validity in predicting the subjects stands on policy statements with regard to minority groups.
