Pretest/Posttest Attitudinal Survey.
This survey is designed to measure student attitudes both before and after an ethnic study unit is taught. It is part of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies Project described in ED 150 043. The project materials are designed to foster communication across intercultural/ethnic lines. The test is comprised of 79 statements, such as "A free society is one in which people with different backgrounds and beliefs can still work together for a common goal." Students have four choices--they indicate whether they strongly disagree, disagree, agree, or strongly agree with the statements made, making their choice twice, once for "the way it is," and once for "the way it ought to be." Other statements include "People should accept each other's ways of thinking and behaving,""Often schools look upon ethnic studies as a way to please the community,""I am often torn between what my family wishes me to do and what my peers wish me to do,""I don't care what people say, I've found that there is some truth to every stereotype,""It shouldn't make any difference whether your doctor is a man or a woman," and "I can usually tell what a person is like by the way he/she is dressed."
