abstract

The Need for Closure Scale – NFCS (Roets & Van Hiel, 2011) was designed to assess individuals’ motivation with respect to information processing and judgement. The need for closure is defined as a desire for an answer in order to stop further information processing and judgement, even if that answer is not the correct or best answer. The short version of NFCS consists of 15 items with 5-point Likert type ratings measuring 5 facets: desire for predictability, preference of order and structure, discomfort with ambiguity, decisiveness, and closed-mindedness. Our study presents the structure of Czech version of NFCS-15-CZ (Širůček, Ťápal, & Linhartová, 2014; Širůček & Ježek, 2015) on a professionally specific sample of teachers (N = 142) and student teachers (N = 121). The results do not substantially differ from the results of general population. We discuss the possible applications of NFCS-15-CZ in educational research and its usefulness (as the scale correlates with beliefs and attitudes as well as behaviour).
