Development of an Instrument to Assess Attitudes of High School Students in Compensatory Programs.
Kilbane, Marian T.
This paper describes the development of the Survey of Pupil Opinion, an attitude-assessment instrument adapted to the reading and "palatability" levels of high school students in compensatory programs. An initial pool of 100 items assumed to reflect "attitude toward school" was reduced to a 30-item instrument. Results revealed that, for each of three factors--social participation, perception of teachers, and self as student--the lowest mean score was obtained by the students who later dropped out of school. A copy of the instrument and tabulations and a graph of the three factor mean scores and the total mean score are included. (Author/DG)
