A Classification of Measures of Affective Performance.
McDonough, Marlene; Saulino, Raymond
This paper defines affective development as, "the growth of an individual's attitudes toward self, others, and institutions." The intent of this paper is to provide educators with the information necessary to use existing measures of affective development in the evaluation of their educational programs. This information includes: (1) a listing of recently designed measures of affective development; (2) a system for classifying these instruments; and (3) a method for evaluating the usefulness and appropriateness of these tests. With these resources, educators can have a systematic method for identifying, evaluating, and selecting measures of affective development. This methodology can be helpful in the process of deciding which instrument is best suited for use with a particular program. (Author)
