Measurement of Affect and Humanizing of Education. Part IV, Search for Affective Instruments and Measurement Procedures. Final Report of the Interstate Educational Resource Service Center Affective Education Project.
Interstate Educational Resource Service Center, Salt Lake City, UT.
The document relates a search for instruments to measure affective goals of educational programs. The document is part of the final report of a project to humanize education. The document is presented in five major sections. Section I presents a conceptual framework for categorizing affective instruments according to the dimension of affect (feelings, perceptions, values, and goals) and the object of affect (person or thing toward which one develops a specific dimension of affect). Section II chronicles instrument search and collection efforts. Activities included review of affective measurement literature and communication with institutes engaged in affective education. Section III explains how data on the instruments were organized. Section IV summarizes results of the search, which identified 1,258 specific instruments. The final section concludes that the instrument search provided useful information for the affective project. Appendices present tabular data on all the instruments. Data for each instrument include usefulness to the project, type of instrument, description, grade level, author, and source. (DB)
