The Relationship Between the Is of Identity and Attitude toward Disabled Persons Scales.
Lazar, Alfred L.; Ernandes, Carol
A correlational analysis was conducted between scores obtained on the Is of Identity Test (IOI) and the Attitude Toward Disabled Persons Scale (ATDP) by 105 graduate and undergraduate university students enrolled in an introductory special education course. The IOI is a 100 item scale designed to measure social adjustment, while the ATDP measures acceptance or rejection of the disabled and nondisabled. A significant correlation was found between the two sets of scores. It was suggested that there might be a relationship between high levels of social adjustment and acceptance of the disabled. Data were thought to support the assumption that there is a close relationship between symbolic models and reality. (GW)
