Assessing Attitudes toward Reading.
Estes, Thomas H.
Based on the feeling that affective dimensions of reading are important and deserve evaluation, a scale is suggested to assess attitudes toward reading. The scale consists of a series of statements and five possible responses to each, ranging from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree." Each response is given a numerical value; and the higher the score received by a respondent, the more positive his attitude toward reading is judged to be. A list of 14 criteria guide the formulation of appropriate statements for such a scale. Modifications in the scale and in the statements can be made to suit the reading abilities of given respondents. (A sample test, a scoring key, and references are included.) (AL)
