A Comparative Analysis of Student Attitudes Toward Individualized and Traditional Instruction.
To determine student attitudes toward traditional and individualized instruction, 152 students (92 males, 60 females) selected from the postsecondary instructional areas of agriculture, business, home economics, and trades and industry were surveyed for their opinions. The students responded to 25 statements about each type of instruction saying whether they strongly disagreed, disagreed, were uncertain, agreed, or strongly agreed with each statement. Findings indicate that students prefer individualized over traditional instruction, but they have favorable attitudes toward both methods suggesting that both types of instruction are needed. The survey instrument is appended. (MU)
