The Prediction of Subject Matter Bias Related to Science in the Elementary Schools.
Prince, Fred L.
Reported is a study whose purpose was to produce preliminary validation information for an instrument designed to measure the bias of elementary school teachers toward four disciplines: science, mathematics, social studies and language arts. One hundred fifty elementary education majors were given a 36-item inventory with each item designed to elicit biased responses between pairs of school disciplines, using a five-point scale of bias between the members of the pair. Reliability and validity of the instrument were computed. Preliminary data suggested that this inventory was a highly reliable instrument. (Author/PEB)
