Attitude Measurement

What do I think about Inclusive Education? It depends on who is asking: Experimental evidence for a Social Desirability Bias in attitudes towards Inclusion

In this study we found that attitudes towards inclusive education are significantly influenced by social context (i.e. the perceived attitude of the organization conducting the survey). Social desirability, a neglected issue in this research area, challenges the validity of numerous studies, as a positive bias emerges when participants are surveyed by a university. The study suggests steps to reduce validity problems caused by social desirability in researching attitudes towards inclusion.
