Cognitive and Affective Changes of Environmental Education -- A Model for Evaluation.
Fletcher, Richard K., Jr.; Ballal, S. K.
This paper discusses the design and results for the evaluation of an environmental education institute program held at Tennessee Technological University from July 1976 to June 1977. The 26 participants completed pre- and post instruments which included items of both attitudinal and knowledge composition. The goals for the evaluation of the program were: (1) to increase environmental knowledge in selected areas of the participants; (2) to create an awareness of environmental issues and possible solutions; (3) to present interesting sessions; and (4) to develop plans of action. One part of the instrument consisted of 50 cognitive multiple-choice items. Other parts were 25 Likert type items, semantic differential items, and written comments. Data were subjected to F-ratios, t-tests and other statistical procedures. Summary data and statistics are given for test items. Both positive and negative comments from participants are included along with a discussion of selected items. (MR)
