Environmental Education Materials Evaluation Questionnaire (EEMEQ): Using Interdisciplinary Theory To Assess Quality.
Minner, Daphne D.
In this article, the construction and psychometric properties of the Environmental Education Materials Evaluation Questionnaire (EEMEQ) are described. The EEMEQ was designed to assess the quality (high, medium, or low) of environmental education materials based on interdisciplinary theory and research bridging the fields of education, psychology, and human development intervention. Results from the initial evaluation indicate that the instrument can discriminate differences in quality of materials, indicating that the first step in developing an independent, theoretically based assessment has been taken. Findings from the initial pilot of the EEMEQ on 35 material packages are presented and suggestions for further research are discussed. The EEMEQ is included in this article, but the coding template is not. (Contains 19 references.) (Author/MM)
