Racial Attitude and Cultural Expression Test (RACE). Student Questionnaire.
Samph, Thomas; Sayles, Felton
Designed to measure the racial attitudes of children, the items of RACE (Racial Attitude and Cultural Expression Test) are founded on a theoretical base established from the literature. Each item is replicated to provide internal consistency checks on each response set. Scoring is done by hand and is assumed to provide interval data. Reading skills are not required for the student to respond. RACE has twelve tasks to be read and described by the teacher. Each task has a picture or group of pictures which the student may arrange in any order he desires in relation to himself. These pictures are of black and white males and females. Test-retest reliability was computed and demonstrated an acceptable level on the variables of Linear Distance, Student Inclusion, Identification, and Power. Even though selected variables discriminated, overall, the instrument failed to discriminate positive and negative student attitude groups. (Author/RC)
