An Instrument for the Assessment of Study Behaviors of High School Students.
Bliss, Leonard B.
An instrument was developed to investigate the study behavior of high school students. Based on the Study Behavior Inventory (Bliss and Mueller, 1986), a measure designed to examine the study behaviors of college students, the Study Behavior Inventory-High School Version was developed through the contributions of 10 focus groups of high school teachers who considered the appropriateness of items from the original instrument for a high school population. Students in Social Studies classes from 2 high schools (n=767) participated in studies of validity, and a pilot group of 43 students took the new instrument on 2 different occasions to study reliability. Results suggest that the Study Behavior Inventory-High School Version appears to produce valid, and in most cases, reliable scores when administered to students in grades 9 through 12, although the low reliability of Factor 4 of the scale is of concern, and requires investigation. An appendix contains the instrument. (Contains 15 references.) (SLD)
