During the years of adolescence, defined by experts as a very important stage in the process
of building one’s self-identity, major changes occur at biological, social and cultural level.
These changes may be exploited from educational perspective as complex opportunities of the
adolescent’s formation and development. The value system of one person depends on what is
positively valued in the family, but also on what are the dominant values in the environment
in which individual lives. Big societal change involves reexamining the existing values and
embracing new ones, which can be a long-term process. The general aim of the research is to
examine the values and moral attitudes of adolescents aged 16 to 21 years. The realization of
this goal is done through the examining the rank of terminal and instrumental values at
adolescents and examining the moral attitudes, such as the dominance of traditional and
liberal attitudes. The examination of the values is carried out with abbreviated and partially
modified version of Rokich's 'value questionnaire'. Moral attitudes are measured with a "scale
of moral attitudes".
