A System for Assessing Affectivity.
Bills, Robert E.
This monograph describes a system for assessing student affectivity. The system was developed over a period of two decades and includes five principal instruments, one of which has four different form levels. In general, the system is applicable to grades 7-12, but portions can be used in grades 3-6 and at the college and adult levels. Although the primary purpose of the book is to assist schools in determining their responsibilities in the affective lives of students and to assist them in assessing affective student learnings and climates for affective learnings, it has another purpose--the area of affectivity is one to which psychology and education have only recently given attention. Much work must be done to increase scientific insights and to describe methods by which schools can improve their affective climates for learning. Since the author desires that the instruments and system he describes be helpful in advancing such scientific insights, he has included considerable technical and statistical information. (Author/PC)
