Development of Scale to Measure Attitude of Animal Husbandry Personnel towards using ICAR-IVRI Crystoscope
Keywords:Crystoscope, Attitude scale, Animal husbandry personnel
The attitude of animal husbandry personnel toward any animal husbandry technology isÂ an important factor in evaluating the technology and will also aid in the development of future innovative technologies. Based on Likertâ€™s summative rating technique of scaleÂ development, a scale was constructed in the year 2020 to measure the attitude of animal
husbandry personnel toward using the ICAR-IVRI Crystoscope. The scale consisted of final 16 statements, including 8 positive and 8 negative statements. Reliability of the scaleÂ was calculated using Cronbachâ€™s alpha method which was found to be 0.824 and reflectsÂ the high reliability of the measuring instrument. The validity of the scale was tested by expertâ€™s judgment. The reliability and validity of the scale indicate its consistency and precision of the results. This scale can be used to measure the attitude of animal husbandryÂ personnel in similar situation beyond the study area with suitable modifications.
