Attitude Measurement of Pupils with Varying Reading Abilities Semantic Differential Using Concepts Presented by Transparencies.
Francies, Hallie Davis
Measurement of pupil attitudes can be influenced by the pupil's ability and motivation to read, particularly for those students whose ability is below average. To obtain a valid measure of sixth grade pupil attitudes as they related to Family Life education, the reading factor needed to be eliminated as much as possible. A test utilizing situational transparencies combined with a machine-scorable semantic differential instrument was devised. This method for measuring attitudes was tested on sixth grade pupils, checked by individual pupil interviews, and subjected to a series of factor analyses. The pupils responded favorably to the method used, and willingly indicated varying attitudes concerning the situations which were presented. (Author/CK)
