Development of Psychometric Measures of Student Attitudes Toward Technical Training: Norm Group Report.
Miller, Gary G.; Sellman, Wayne S.
The Phase 2 effort of a task to develop a new student critique form for the Air Training Command (ATC) is described. Phase 1 recommended the further development of group specific norms for officers, NCOs, and airmen enrolled in technical training schools. In Phase 2 additional items were added to the prototype form resulting in a later version of the critique form that had a reliability of .80. The Phase 2 version of the Student Critique Form (SCF) was administered to a sample of over 1,800 students enrolled in technical training courses at six Air Force bases. Norms were gathered separately for officers, NCOs, and airmen. Seven scales emerged from a factor analysis of the Phase 2 version of the SCF: Instructor Competence, Study Environment and Testing, Specialty Training, Training Impressions, Classroom Facilities and Environment, Training Devices and Audio Visual Aids, and Training Materials Adequacy. Phase 2 of this effort was subsequently initiated to develop the computer software to score and interpret the SCF. (Author/RC)
