Student Attitudes Towards School, Education, Behavior and Discipline -- A Statewide Opinion Survey. Summary Report.
Northwest Attitudes, Inc., Portland, OR.
Between May 5 and May 21, 1980, Northwest Attitudes, Inc. (NWAI) surveyed 2,042 students around Oregon about attitudes towards school, education, behavior and discipline. The students surveyed represented a random sample of students in grades 7 through 12 in Oregon's public schools. The questionnaire was a self-administered instrument completed by randomly selected students. The schools proportionally represented all areas of Oregon. Students completed the questionnaires with a NWAI staff member present who read standard instructions and who was available to answer questions. The questionnaire consisted of 41 closed-ended and five open-ended questions. Students were assured of confidentiality; conduct during the administration sessions and the quality of responses received indicate that the students took the survey seriously and responded in a thoughtful manner. This report is a summary of statewide results. Results are not given for all questions asked in the questionnaire. It is the intent of NWAI that this report serve to highlight the statewide data collected. (Author/GK)
