Teaching Psychometrics in South Korea through a Reunification Attitude Scale Class Project.
Webster, Sandra K.
The introduction of a team term project into a Korean psychometrics class is described. Students developed an item pool of attitude statements regarding the reunification of South Korea and North Korea. Then teams of students used the item pool to develop attitude questionnaires, survey other students, analyze the results, and recommend which items to include in an Attitudes Toward Reunification Questionnaire. The objectives of the teaching activity were to give students experience in the use of scientific problem solving, to help them understand the reasons behind the principles of scale construction, and to give them an appreciation of the methods of psychometrics as they used them in scale construction. Evaluation of the project focuses on practical course administration issues and cross cultural considerations. (Author/SLD)
