ABSTRACT

This study aims to illustrate how we measure learners’ affective domain, especially their interest in classroom-used materials, throughout methodological triangulation. The used methods of data-collection include learner’s daily questionnaire, learner’s end-of-semester questionnaire, learners’ diaries, semi-structured weekly learner-interviews, and observation of learners’ classroom behaviors. The overall results of correlations, checked via Pearson r correlation coefficients, indicate that the learners who took part in the present investigation responded their self-reporting interest in a modestly consistent way. To conclude, it is suggested that, as learners’ affective domain belongs to realm inside learners, it should be necessary to employ mixed methods of data collection to enhance the credibility of the findings.
