Abstract

A number of technologies are developed for rural women. Unfortunately these technologies are not widely adopted by them. This could be due to low awareness about these technologies, lack of proper knowledge about them and unfavourable attitude of rural women towards these technologies. Hence it is important to assess the attitude of rural women towards the technologies developed for them. A study was conducted in three districts of Bihar- Vaishali, Samastipur and Muzaffarpur in 2013 to develop and standardise attitude scale using Likert method of summated rating to measure the attitude of rural women towards homestead technologies of RAU and to know the attitude level of the respondents towards theses technologies. Following Likert method, 22 statements constituted the final attitude scale to measure the attitude of rural women towards homestead technologies of RAU. It was found that 65.78 per cent of the respondents had favourable attitude towards homestead technologies of RAU. It was followed by 18.67 per cent respondents with neutral and 15.55 per cent respondents with unfavourable attitude towards homestead technologies of RAU respectively.
