A student's cognitive achievement may be facilitated or repressed by various elements that constitute his affective character; his feelings, attitudes, and expectations form a substantial relationship with achievement. Rather than limiting themselves to evaluating those cognitive areas that relate with various measures of achievement, the administrators and staff members at the New Community School (NCS) have specified a desire to investigate and measure both the attitudes toward school and the self held by their attending students. Within the domain of educational evaluation, greater significance is being accorded to the students' values, interests, and attitudes(Lockwood 1973). In keeping with such considerations, this evaluation is being adopted as part of a systematic evaluation of the goals and objectives at the NCS.
