Pupils' Attitudes towards Art Teaching in Primary School: An Evaluation Tool
Pavlou, Victoria; Kambouri, Maria
Studies in Educational Evaluation, v33 n3-4 p282-301 Sep-Dec 2007
Pupils' attitudes influence both learning and teaching processes and affect the way pupils will engage with art as adults. This article introduces an attitude scale, the Attitude Scale for Art Experienced in School (ASAES), which comprises four subscales: enjoyment, confidence, usefulness, and support. A three-step procedure was followed for the construction and validation of the scale which was administered to 420 primary school pupils in Cyprus. The scale's psychometric properties are evaluated through Confirmatory Factor analysis. The findings indicate that teachers' art specialisation and attitudes towards art teaching, pupils' perceived competence and pupils' gender are three important variables that influence the formation of pupils' attitudes. Important interactions between these variables are also reported.
