Poetry Methods Rating Scale.
Gallo, Donald R.
Designed to assess high school teachers' attitudes about teaching poetry, this questionnaire asked teachers to respond to a 38-item poetry methods rating scale (PMRS) on a seven-point scale (from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree"). The items for the questionnaire were derived from a study of popular methods texts for teaching literature. Scores on the questionnaire were compared with the scores originally obtained from experts in teaching English. The Spearman-Brown split-halves reliability for 39 teachers in the study in which the PMRS was used was .75. The test-retest reliability coefficient was .62 for 93 other teachers on whom the questionnaire was tried out. [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 (Teacher Competency), title, author, date, and age range (high school), describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (JM)
