Measuring of Affect. A Concept Paper. Working Draft.
Gammel, J. D.
The measurement of affect to support the achievement or nonachievement of affective education goals is an unresolved problem for educational institutions. The paper outlines a means for both developing an affective goal structure and identifying measurable indicators of affective behavior. To achieve this, it defines and discusses concepts related to educational affective context, affective objective hierarchy, affective learning objectives and affective classification matrix. Each of these concepts is further explained through the use of examples taken from an elementary and secondary school setting. The paper concludes that the application of these concepts to curriculum development will result in a more humane, as well as affective, education experience. (Author/RC)
