The Curriculum Accommodation Questionnaire, Form S.
Jones, John A.
The Curriculum Accommodation Questionnaire (CAQ) is a paper and pencil, self report instrument, consisting of 56 items each of which has a 6-point Likert-type response scale. The questionnaire measures differences in values and attitudes between teachers possessing differing degrees of innovativeness. Through factor analysis 13 traits were identified: Educational Conservatism, Educational Progressivism, Moral Flexibility, Permissiveness, Puritanism, Rugged Individualism, Bigotry, Curriculum Defined by Society, Teacher Distrust of Authority, Equality of Educational Opportunity, Rigidity Toward Change, Academic Elitism, and Law and Order. In general the factor variables were better at revealing attitudes and values that were negatively associated with teacher innovativeness than revealing attitudes and values that were positively associated with innovativeness. Validity data is reported for the CAQ. (BB)
