Brehman, George E., Jr.
The objectives of this study were twofold: first, to develop an improved version of the instruments used to measure Goal IV (Attitude Toward School and School Learning) at the fifth and eleventh grade levels in the public schools of Pennsylvania under a program of "Educational Quality Assessment" mandated by the legislature. Secondly, it was the object of this study to develop items that would measure attitudes toward learning that are independent of school context. (Author/CK)
