Bullen Reading Attitude Measure.
Bullen, Gertrude F.
The Bullen Reading Attitude Measure (BRAM) is an instrument that was developed to serve as a diagnostic aid in assessing reading attitudes of elementary school children in grades one through six. The objectives of the test are to measure the subject's attitude toward reading at home or school, visiting the library, owning and buying books, receiving books as presents, and the concept of self as a reader. The test is in two forms: the primary grades (1-3) form is ten pages and takes 15 minutes to administer, the upper grade form (4-6) is five pages long and takes 20 minutes.There are illustrations with the primary form and the upper form is written and all questions are color coded. Although the group tested in the study which developed the test were urban, white children, the results show that BRAM is a useful instrument in assessing reading attitudes and should be applied to other groups of children.
