Identifying Your Educational Philosophy: Development of the Philosophies Held by Instructors of Lifelong-Learners (PHIL)
Conti, Gary J.
Journal of Adult Education, v36 n1 p19-35 Spr 2007
The Philosophies Held by Instructors of Lifelong-learners (PHIL) was developed to identify a respondent's preference for one of the major schools of philosophical thought: Idealism, Realism, Pragmatism, Existentialism, or Reconstructionism. Using the pool of items from an established instrument, its final form and content validity were determined by a series of discriminant analyses. Criterion-related validity was established through a three-part process, and reliability was established through the test-retest process. PHIL is a short, user-friendly tool that is designed for self-assessment for instrumented learning. An appendix is included. (Contains 4 tables.)
