Syracuse Environmental Awareness Tests--Level III. Final Report on Construction and Norming.
Kleinke, David J.; Gardner, Eric F.
This report concerns a test, the Syracuse Environmental Awareness Tests-Level III (SEAT-III), developed at Syracuse University and designed to measure knowledge of and concern for man's environment among high school students and adults. There are four forms of SEAT-III; forms A and B are intended to provide measures of knowledge about environmental problems and issues; forms C and D (the affective tests) were planned to assess attitudes toward environmental issues. This report is intended to serve two purposes. First, it contains information about the test's score distributions and reliability, as well as of the content and underlying rationale of the tests. Second, it is designed to serve as a final report on the construction of the test. Included in the report are: an introduction, the initial stages of development, the development of test norms, score distributions, item statistics, and test reliability. Tables and appendices are also included. (Author/TK)
