Validation of a Writing Attitude Scale.
O'Neal, Marcia R.; And Others
Several analyses were performed as part of the process of validating a recently developed scale to measure the attitudes of students toward writing. The Florida Writing Project Student Survey is a 25-item measure of writing attitudes designed for use with students in grades six through twelve. It was developed to assess the attitudes of students who had participated in the Florida Writing Project. The evaluation consisted of six analyses for reliability, item analysis, correlation between the attitude scale and holistic writing scores, and the survey's sensitivity to change. Further analyses are recommended as a means of refining the survey and providing additional validation information. (DWH)
