Dimensions of Educational Worldview.
Miller, A. H.; Thompson, B.
The study was conducted to gain insight into the nature and structure of educators' education-related attitudes and beliefs. Subjects included both education students and teachers. The subjects completed two instruments (Kerlinger's Educational Scale VII and the Educational Philosophy Index). Results suggest that more than two dimensions are required to subsume educators' beliefs, although some researchers have argued that two dimensions should be sufficient. Thus, it appears that educators' beliefs are more complex than some educators generally assume. (Author/DS)
