A Study of the Personality Characteristics of the Acceptor and the Rejector of the Newer Educational Media among Secondary Teachers of Wisconsin.
Grant, Alfred D.
The personality characteristics of teachers in relation to their acceptance and rejection of the newer educational media were studied. The subjects of the study were 253 high school teachers at several high schools which had just been visited by the Wisconsin Audiovisual Education Demonstration (WAVED) mobile unit. The WAVED unit was designed to provide teachers with the services of various media professionals and to demonstrate the value of an adequate audiovisual media center. The teachers took an audiovisual attitude test and a personality trait inventory. The results of these tests were correlated with the amount of use the teacher made of the WAVED unit. An analysis of this data provided a personality profile of the average male and female acceptor and rejector of educational media. A bibliography and a collection of the materials used to gather data in the study are appended. (JY)
