A Comparative Study of Attitudes Toward the Handicapped and Self Concept by Students at Three Universities.
Lazar, Alfred L.; And Others
Attitudes toward the handicapped and self concept were compared in 102 students enrolled in three universities offering training programs in special education. All Ss were administered the Attitude Toward Handicapped Individuals scale, the Preferred Student Characteristic Scale, The Is of Identity test, and the Tennessee Self Concept scale. Results indicated that Ss were understanding and accepting of the handicapped; that Ss shared a common view toward instructional goals which tended to point in the direction of the cognitive domain; and that Ss tended to be in the normal or average range on self concept scores.
