EVALUATION OF ATTITUDES RELATING TO TEACHING.
HUFF, GEORGE P.
AFFECTIVE BEHAVIOR TESTING INSTRUMENTS KNOWN AS Q-SORTS WERE DEMONSTRATED IN A COMPUTER-ORIENTED APPROACH TO THE ASSESSMENT OF PERSONAL TRAITS, VALVE SYSTEMS, AND SELF-CONCEPTS OF THE ROLE OF A TEACHER. DURING TWO SEMESTERS, Q-SORTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO 351 STUDENT TEACHERS, BEGINNING ELEMENTARY TEACHERS, AND MASTER TEACHERS IN EIGHT GROUPS. STATISTICAL PROCESSING OF Q-SORTS WAS LARGELY ACCOMPLISHED BY MEANS OF COMPUTER PROGRAMS DESIGNED ESPECIALLY FOR THE STUDY. RESULTS WERE PRESENTED AS RELATED TO THE INDIVIDUAL, GROUP, AND METHODOLOGY. FINDINGS SHOWED THAT IT WAS POSSIBLE TO ASSESS THE AFFECTIVE BEHAVIORS AND CHANGES IN AFFECTIVE BEHAVIOR OF STUDENT TEACHERS DURING THEIR TEACHING APPRENTICESHIP. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT THE INSTRUMENTS AND METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY COULD BE USED BY EDUCATORS TO ASSESS SUBJECTIVE MATTERS. (JM)
