Validation of the Curriculum Accommodation Questionnaire.
Jones, John A.
An instrument to measure differences in values and attitudes between teachers possessing differing degrees of innovativeness was developed. Factor analysis of responses to the Curriculum Accomodation Questionnaire revealed 13 factors. Predictive statistical analysis revealed associations between a concurrent measure of teacher innovativeness and eight of the factors. The factors labeled Educational Conservatism, Curriculum Defined by Society, Teacher Distrust of Authority, and Rigidity Toward Change were negatively associated with teacher innovativeness. The factors labeled Permissiveness, Equality of Educational Opportunity, Academic Elitism, and Law and Order were positively associated with teacher innovativeness. The other factors identified were Educational Conservatism, Moral Flexibility, Puritanism, Rugged Individualism, and Bigotry. A review of the literature is provided. (Author/BB)
