Projective Measures of Intrafamilial Attitudes as a Function of Value Judgments about Higher Education.
Sweney, Arthur B.
The academic community is very concerned at this time to develop measures of professor adequacy against which to validate students' evaluations. Sweney and Weston (1970) found ten independent dimensions which explain attitudes and expectancies of their professors. These became the basis for the Learning Encounter Measure (LEM). Many of these dimensions suggested underlying intrafamilial attitudes. The studies reported related scores on LEM with interpersonal attitudes from the Chromatic Differential Test (CDT). 188 college students involved in a tutoring program took the LEM and CDT as part of their in-service training program. The intercorrelations found on these two scales indicated very strong relationships between intrafamilial attitudes and preferred professor behavior. The results indicated that needs for structured simplicity were related to rejection of self and negative association with mother. The needs for professor control was related most to negative feelings to father and some negative attitudes toward mother and self. (Author/BW)
