Rao, Shaila; Gartin, Barbara C.
Journal for Vocational Special Needs Education, v25 n2-3 p47-54 Win-Spr 2003
Two hundred and forty-five university faculty responded to a survey questionnaire that assessed their attitudes toward providing different accommodations related to instructional delivery, examination, and other assistance to students with disabilities in the classroom. The influence of gender, professional rank, department affiliation, experience teaching students with disabilities, personal contact with persons with disabilities, and legislative knowledge on attitudes toward providing accommodations were assessed. Department affiliation, previous teaching experience, and legislative knowledge significantly impacted willingness to provide accommodations. (Contains 2 tables.)
