Development, Validity, and Reliability of the Preservice Teachers' Attitude toward Educational Research (P-TATER) Scale
Gonyea, Nathan E.
Journal of Research in Education, v23 n2 p79-96 Fall 2013
While there is a growing emphasis on the use of data in educational decision making and research to select educational interventions, there is still limited research on the attitudes of teachers toward research and even less research on preservice teachers' attitudes. Additionally, there are few quantitative instruments designed to measure teachers' attitudes toward research and no instruments to measure preservice teachers' attitudes toward research. The instruments that do exist are of questionable quality. The purpose of the present study was to develop a measure of preservice teachers' attitudes called the Preservice Teachers' Attitudes Toward Educational Research (P-TATER) scale.
