Minneapolis Junior and Senior High School Students' Attitudes Toward School May 1972.
Johnson, Lary; Faunce, R. W.
This report presents the results of a 93-item student attitude measure, the Student Opinion Questionnaire (SOQ.) The SOQ measures attitudes in the following areas: general listing of school, interest in learning, unfair punishment, self concept, friendly atmosphere, envolvement in decision making, class discussions, positive reinforcement, curriculum relevance, fear of asking questions, perception of progress in learning, teacher quality, and racial attitudes. The Questionnaire was administered to over 22,000 students in grades 7-12 from 26 junior and senior high schools. Wide variations in the response patterns for individual schools and large grade level variations in the responses are described. The SOQ is in the developmental stages and has undetermined validity and reliability. However, its results may be used to stimulate staff development activities to study longitudinal trends in student attitudes, and to evaluate specific programs with affective objectives. (NE)
