The Secondary School Research Program Employing QUESTA, Templeton Secondary School 1971-72. Research Report.
Ellis, E. N.
The Secondary School Research Program devised a two-part Questionnaire for Students, Teachers and Administrators (QUESTA I and QUESTA II) to gather information about the attitudes, values and perceptions of these groups and the rate and extent to which they change. QUESTA I, administered to students when they enter high school, gathers baseline biographical, socioeconomic, demographic, and attitudinal information. It seeks the new student's attitudes toward himself, his peers, his previous school, his new school, and his hopes, fears, and aspirations. QUESTA II is administered during or at the end of any of the four years of high school to measure the impact of the school upon his attitudes and values. QUESTA II is also designed for administration to teachers and administrators. QUESTA can be used to facilitate understanding of relations between groups in a school and how the parts of the school interact and affect the educational process. The school's progress and educational environment can be improved if action is taken on the strengths and weaknesses revealed by QUESTA. A brief overview of the summary of responses of Templeton Secondary School to QUESTA is provided. (KM)
