The "Place of Drama" Questionnaire.
Hoetker, James; Robb, Richard
Designed to assess teachers" attitudes toward a variety of objectives for teaching drama, the "Place of Drama" questionnaire contains 32 items. A principal component factor analysis of results from a large-scale tryout yielded the following categories among the items: noncognitive personal development, ethical growth, literary knowledge, improvement of taste and behavior, curricular utility, theater-specific knowledge, transfer of skills, enjoyment, and art appreciation. Eight categories were devised to cover the range of objectives for drama, and then four groups in the study--English teachers, actors, administrators, and drama teachers--sorted the objectives into the categories with rather high agreement (85 percent in one sorting), confirming their usefulness and appropriateness. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Teacher Competency), title, authors, and date, and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
