STUDENT ATTITUDES AND TEACHER JUDGMENT OF STUDENT ATTITUDES.
BOYD, RICHARD S.
THROUGH INTERVIEWS BY A PSYCHOLOGIST AT TWO DIFFERENT HIGH SCHOOLS, AN MQ-SORT INSTRUMENT WAS DEVELOPED. THE INSTRUMENT CONSISTED OF 100 STATEMENTS CONCERNING GRADES, TEACHERS, ACTIVITIES, AND LEARNING. TEACHERS SORTED THE STATEMENTS THE WAY THEY THOUGHT MOST STUDENTS IN THE SCHOOL WOULD SORT THEM. STUDENTS SORTED THEM TO DESCRIBE THEIR PERSONAL FEELINGS. THE TEACHERS' SORT WAS CLOSER TO THAT OF STUDENTS WITH LOW GRADES THAN TO THOSE MAKING HIGHER GRADES. THEY ALSO RELATED MORE CLOSELY WITH BOYS THAN WITH GIRLS. IN COMPARING WITH THE STUDENT POPULATION AS A WHOLE, TEACHERS SIGNIFICANTLY UNDERRATED STUDENTS ON--(1) THE VALUE STUDENTS PLACE UPON LEARNING, (2) THEIR ENJOYMENT OF SCHOOL WORK AND EXTRA WORK, AND (3) THE IMPORTANCE STUDENTS GIVE TO SCHOOL AND ITS MEANING TO THEIR FUTURE.
