The Implicit Curriculum Survey: An Examination of the Psychometric Properties
Grady, Melissa D.; Swick, Danielle C.; Powers, Joelle D.
Journal of Social Work Education, v54 n2 p261-269 2018
This study examined the psychometric properties of the Implicit Curriculum Survey (ICS) using an exploratory factor analysis (EFA). Students enrolled in four different MSW programs (N = 262) from different geographic locations completed the ICS, which is a Web-based survey. The domains of the ICS include field, academics, community, diversity, faculty advising, and support services. The ICS includes quantitative and qualitative responses. However, for this study only the quantitative results were used. The EFA revealed that for each of the subscales, Cronbach's alphas ranged from 0.52 to 0.90 and validity of the ICS was demonstrated through the good model fits found during the factor analysis. Implications for social work education and future research are discussed.
