The Open Curriculum and Selection of Qualified Staff: Instrument Validation.
Greene, John F.; And Others
The impact of open education on today's curriculum has been extensive. Of the many requests for research in this area, none is more important than instrument validation. This study examines the internal structure of Barth's Assumptions about Learning and Knowledge scale and explores its relationship to established "progressivism" and "traditionalism" scales and demographic variables. Barth's scale and Education Scale VII were administered to 149 subjects. Item and factor analysis yielded support for Barth's scale. As hypothesized, the scale correlated significantly with Education Scale VII. No relationships were found with the demographic variables considered. (Author)
