A Study to Determine the Relationship Between English Teachers' Knowledge of and Their Attitudes Toward Behavioral Objectives.
Thompson, Veronica Vayda
This study investigated the relationship between English teachers' knowledge of and attitude toward behavioral objectives. A questionnaire was given to 134 English teachers in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Four conclusions were drawn from the study: (1) no statistically significant relationship existed between the teachers' knowledge of and attitude toward behavioral objectives; (2) reading works by Bloom, Krathwohl, and Mager on behavioral objectives had no effect on attitudes toward these objectives; (3) in-service education on behavioral objectives emphasized the cognitive domain and the construction format of behavioral objectives while excluding the affective domain; and (4) English teachers who opposed behavioral objectives read more on this subject than those teachers who favored the objectives.
