Developing a Questionnaire on Attitude towards School
Seker, Hasan
Learning Environments Research, v14 n3 p241-261 Oct 2011
The purpose of the present study was to develop a questionnaire to assess student attitudes towards school by describing the factors that affect these attitudes. For this purpose, a sample of 362 (11-13 years-old) elementary-school students was used. Both exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were carried out. The questionnaire consists of six factors (Belongingness to School, School Image, Loneliness at School, Teaching, Testing and Feedback-Giving Activities, and Reluctance). When data were tested via structural equation modelling, examination of fit indices indicated that the model came close to fitting the data with goodness-of-fit coefficients at recommended levels. The School Attitude Questionnaire was found to be suitable in the light of the findings of our study, and its scales are thought to affect students' attitudes towards school.
