Measuring Student Attitudes Toward the Air Force Traffic Safety Course. Final Report for Period February 1977--December 1978.
DeLeo, Philip J.; Slaughter, Sharon L.
A questionnaire survey was developed to measure the attitudes of students toward the Air Force Traffic Safety Course. Mandatory for virtually all personnel entering the Air Force, this course was taught in a standardized multimedia format at more than 140 locations . It was a 10-hour course of instruction covering environmental hazards, vehicle control, and emergency situations. Attitudes toward instructor, course, and media effectiveness, and opinions about various environmental features (such as noise and temperature) were measured. Attitudes were measured at the unit level and for the course as a whole. It was concluded that: reliability and content and constuct validity were acceptable; attitude scales were appropriate; personnel felt all units were fairly effective; and the course was evaluated favorably by the enlisted airmen and generally unfavorably by officers. It was recommended that the questionnaire be adopted, and suggestions were made for data analysis procedures. (The questionnaires are appended.) (Author/MH)
