dc.description.abstract This thesis examines three research hypotheses derived from the Theory of Distributive Justice as developed by George Caspar Homans and as refined by Peter Blau, in an attempt to test the applicability of this paradigm to the distribution of rewards in small groups setting.Reviewing the literature, both theoretical and empirical, with respect to this theory of reward allocation, it was hypothesized that individuals would attempt to allocate rewards so as to establish a ratio of reward that was commensurate to the costs of the stimulus person. The datagenerally support this notion, presenting only one complicating factor. Explanations for the findings are offered, as well as suggestions for further research into these processes.
