Primary Attitude Reading Index with Administrator's Directions.
Powell, Annelle
Designed to measure the changes in attitudes toward reading for pleasure of student groups in grades one to three, this instrument consists of 32 items stated in story form. Each item appears on a single page of the student's booklet, along with three faces representing happy, indifferent, and unhappy reactions. The administrator reads the item to the group, and the student then circles the face which indicates his reaction. Content validity was established by professors of children's literature and reading. The reliability coefficient was .92 when the Spearman Brown Prophesy Formula was applied. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the 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 (primary), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
