Education Opinion Inventory.
McLoughlin, William P.
The Education Opinion Inventory was constructed to measure teachers' and principals' (1) knowledge and (2) acceptance of the theoretical foundations of the nongraded school. The items for the Inventory came from a critical analysis of the literature fundamental to the nongraded school movement: (1) individual differences, (2) pupil evaluation and progress, (3) curriculum, (4) instruction, and (5) organization for learning. These areas formed the subdivisions of the Inventory. In all, 104 items were developed for the five areas: individual differences, pupil evaluation and progress, curriculum, instruction, and organization for learning. Since two types of information are required: (1) knowledge and (2) acceptance of theoretical foundations of the nongraded school movement, each item called for two answers. The rationale for the Inventory is: If the Inventory is to assist educators actively engaged in nongrading the school's instructional program, it should isolate for them areas where the staff's knowledge and/or acceptance of the principles involved is such that it is unlikely for this aspect of nongrading to be operative in the instructional program. The efficient identification of such areas may enable educators to institute procedures to rectify the situation and possibly heighten the chances of having a truly nongraded program in their school.
