Abstract:

A questionnaire survey was developed to measure the attitudes of students toward the Air Force Traffic Safety Course. Mandatory for virtually all personnel entering the Air Force, this course was being taught in a standardized multimedia format at more than 140 locations throughout the world. It was a 10 hour course of instruction covering environmental hazards, vehicle control, emergency situations, etc. Dimensions measured by the questionnaire included attitudes toward instructor, course, and media effectiveness and opinions about various environmental features such as noise and temperature. Attitudes were measured both at unit level and to the course as a whole. Reliability was found to be acceptable. Results of a validation study are presented. It was recommended that the questionnaire be adopted for use and suggestions were made for data analysis procedures. Author
