INTERRELATIONSHIPS AMONG TEACHERS' EXPERIMENTAL ATTITUDE, PUPILS' EXPERIMENTAL ATTITUDE, CREATIVENESS SOCIOMETRIC STRUCTURE, AND THEIR SCHOOL ATTITUDE.
CHEONG, SEE-CHUEN
THE RELATIONSHIP OF DEWEY'S EXPERIMENTALISM TO CREATIVITY, SCHOOL ATTITUDE, AND SOCIOMETRIC STATUS WAS STUDIED. DURING PHASE ONE, FOURTH-SIXTH GRADE TEACHERS (141) WERE ADMINISTERED THE EXPERIMENTALISM SCALE. A TRUNCATION WAS APPLIED AT EACH END OF THE TEACHERS' SCORE CONTINUUM ON THE BASIS OF A T-TEST. DURING PHASE TWO, PUPILS TAUGHT BY THE TEACHERS WHOSE SCORES WERE WITHIN THE TRUNCATED SCOPE AT BOTH EXTREMES OF THE SCORE SPECTRUM, WERE ADMINISTERED THE PUPIL SITUATIONAL INVENTORY DEVELOPED FOR THE STUDY. DURING PHASE THREE THE INVENTORY WAS ADMINISTERED TO THE PUPILS IN CONJUNCTION WITH CREATIVE THINKING, PEER CHOICE RATING, AND SCHOOL ATTITUDE SCALE. THE TOTAL PUPIL POPULATION CONSISTED OF 372 SUBJECTS WITH 207 IN THE LOW EXPERIMENTAL GROUP AND 165 IN THE HIGH EXPERIMENTAL GROUP. RESULTS INDICATED THAT PUPILS TAUGHT BY THE HIGH EXPERIMENTAL TEACHERS PERCEIVED THEIR TEACHERS AS BEING MORE EXPERIMENTAL IN ATTITUDES IN TERMS OF DEWEY'S EXPERIMENTALISM THAN DID THOSE IN THE LOW GROUP. DISCUSSION WAS ALSO PRESENTED OF RESULTS IN SUCH AREAS AS (1) DROPOUT PROBLEMS, (2) SCHOOL CURRICULUM, (3) TEACHER COMPETENCE, AND (4) SOCIAL ACCEPTABILITY. FURTHER IMPLICATIONS WERE SUGGESTED TO PROBE DEWEY'S PHILOSOPHY OF EXPERIMENTALISM FROM OTHER AVENUES. (RS)
