A Questionnaire On The Development Of Incorporating Maker Education In Agriculture Courses
Purpose of this study was to review a questionnaire on the development of incorporating maker education in agriculture courses. A questionnaire on the development of incorporating maker education in agriculture courses was made after literature reviews. Scholars have made suggestions about questions’ relevance and wording’s appropriateness in the questionnaire for establishing content validity and for the reference of the development of a formal questionnaire. To understand suitability and applicability of the questionnaire, a preliminary examination of the questionnaire was conducted for assessing its reliability for the reference of the development of a formal questionnaire after scholars reviewed. The preliminary examination of the questionnaire was conducted in February 2017, using purposive sampling, and there were 126 participants. To obtain construct validity and construct reliability, reliability analysis and validity analysis were performed by a statistical software to examine the questionnaire’s degree of belief after preliminary examination questionnaires were returned. The analysis results showed that Cronbach's α was 0.958. Then a formal questionnaire was developed, and which contained 45 questions in 4 sub-questionnaires: “find and confirm problems,” “actively explore and solve problems,” “teamwork,” and “ability to organize and express.”
