The Philosophies Held by Instructors of Lifelong-learners (PHIL) was developed to identify a respondent's preference for one of the major schools of philosophical thought: Idealism, Realism, Pragmatism, Existentialism, or Reconstructionism. Using the pool of items from an established instrument, its final form and content validity were determined by a series of discriminant analyses. Criterion-related validity was established through a three-part process, and reliability was established through the test-retest process. PHIL is a short, user-friendly tool that is designed for self-assessment for instrumented learning. An appendix is included. (Contains 4 tables.)

Descriptors: Educational Philosophy, Content Validity, Test Construction, Self Evaluation (Individuals), Psychometrics, Ideology, Construct Validity, Test Reliability, Test Validity, Identification, Lifelong Learning, Adult Educators, Psychological Evaluation
