Assessment of Affective Outcomes of Instruction With High School Sophomore Biology Students and Teachers.
Glass, Lynn W.
An instrument was developed to determine the teacher's and student's educational objectives in the affective domain for high school biology. The 65 item attitude assessment scale was based on the same subject matter as "Biological Science: Molecules to Man," and structured according to Krathwohl, Bloom, and Masia's taxonomy. In a pilot study the scale was administered to eight teachers and their 640 students. Based on responses to the scale a profile of educational objectives in the affective domain was developed for each teacher and student. A statistical technique is described by which the profile of each teacher can be matched with the profile of each of his students. It is suggested that the instrument may be used to study transfer of objectives in the affective domain from teacher to students. (EB)
