An Approach to Attitude Assessment in a Military Setting.
Kaats, Gilbert R.
A method is presented which provides for increased subject involvement in the research design along with greater protection of the subjects' rights of privacy. An experimental analysis revealed that with increased motivation subjects took longer to complete the questionnaire; obtained higher, and less socially desirable, Dogmatism scores; and were less likely to manifest a response style which was found to be a function of answer sheet configuration. However, even with increased motivation, experimenter effects were found to produce a significant bias. Implications for attitude assessment research in the military are discussed. (Author)
