Attitudes Toward Reading Scale.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Bureau of Curriculum Services.
This reading attitude scale was designed to negate the tendency for students to indicate overly positive attitudes, a tendency which the authors feel is reflected in responses to other attitude scales. There are two forms of the scale: one for grades 1-3 and one for grades 4-6. The primary scale is read to the children and has a three choice format on a hand-scored answer sheet. The intermediate scale is read by the children themselves and has a five choice format on a machine-scorable answer sheet. The first six items ask for descriptive information. The remaining items are worded either positively or negatively, where positive attitudes are indicated by agreement with positively worded items and disagreement with negatively worded items. Scoring instructions are given. Reliability estimates for both forms are given as .85 to .90. (MKM)
