Definition and Measurement in the Affective Domain: Appreciation of Human Accomplishments.
Campbell, Paul B.; Beers, Joan S.
The first three levels of the taxonomy in the affective domain guided the development of two inventories--the Pennsylvania Inventory of Cultural Appreciations (PICA) for 11th graders and Things People Do (TPD) for 5th graders--to measure appreciation of human accomplishments in seven areas: politics, sciences, sports, literature, visual arts, music, and theatre. Alpha coefficient for the PICA is .92, and for the TPD, .79. Photographs are used in the TPD. With a sample of 3,000 at each grade level, analyses of the instruments included comparison of means, analysis of correlations, factor analysis and analysis of cumulative structure. The hypothesized hierarchical structure is supported by the TPD data but not by the PICA data. Many inferences and implications are discussed. (Author/GS)
