Intermediate Reading Attitude Index with Administrator's Directions.
Powell, Annelle
Designed to measure attitudes toward reading at any specific point and to measure changes in attitude toward reading, this instrument consists of twenty items selected from "An Inventory of Reading Attitude" devised by the Department of Education in San Diego, California. These items were modified by being stated in behavioral terms and in declarative statement form, and a panel of experts (professors of children's literature) checked the content validity. After being administered to a select group of fourth through sixth graders, validity was checked further by the item analysis technique. The split-halves coefficient was .76, and the Spearman-Brown Prophesy Formula reliability coefficient was .86. [This document is one of those reviewed in the Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Reading), title, author, date, and age range (intermediate), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
