91 p. 

This monograph presents technical and statistical information supplemental to previous publications concerning the general outline and characteristics of the school opinion survey (sos), which delineates significant parameters of the learning environment. The introduction includes the guidance model, the need for the sos to help pupil personnel specialists evaluate outcomes, and preliminary developmental steps. The rationale for the sos discusses the approach, the purposes, the learning environmental model (a continuum from educational values to educational objectives to educational technIQues between open, flexible and closed, rigid systems), and practical applications of the sos. The sos structure involved the item pool preparation, form a treatment, factor analysis outcomes, factor structure of form b items for 10 scales (humanism, traditionalism, relativism, individual attention, group activities, ancillary services, non-academic, academic, scientific objectivity, and strict control), the scales' reliability, test-retest reliability of scales and items, and intergroup differences on the form b scales with data drawn from professional staffs and 10th grade students in antiock, oroville, and gridley, California. The summary discussed the relevance of the initial assumptions, uses of the inventory, and future directions. (wr)
