Refining the Charles F. Kettering Profile for a Junior High School Student Population.
Johnson, William L.; Johnson, Annabel M.
This study investigated the factor structure of the Charles F. Kettering Scale, a measure of climate used frequently for program and curriculum revision. A total of 228 students from a junior high school campus of a large school district in the Southwestern United States completed the General Climate Factors section of the Kettering scale. Primary and second-order factor analysis suggested different subscales than those given for the profile. The first-order analysis did not verify the developers' proposed structure, and the second-order analysis found subscales that were cognitive-managerial and affective-experimental in nature. Refinements are offered to make the instrument more effective for the junior high school student population. One figure and four tables present study data. (Contains 37 references.) (Author/SLD)
