Environmental Attitudes Semantic Differential.
Mehne, Paul R.; Goulard, Cary J.
This booklet is an evaluation instrument which utilizes semantic differential data to assess environmental attitudes. Twelve concepts are included: regulated access to beaches, urban planning, dune vegetation, wetlands, future cities, reclaiming wetlands for building development, city parks, commercial development of beaches, existing cities, planned management of wetlands, planned use of coastal zone, and unprotected beaches. Each of the concepts is rated on a seven point scale, the middle point being neutral. The scales consist of two words such as strong and weak, with seven spaces between them. The participant is asked to mark an "x" according to how he feels the concept at the top of the page relates to the scale. The ten scales used to rate the concepts are: complex - simple, unimportant - important, strong - weak, dirty - clean hard - soft, active - passive, beautiful - ugly, pleasant - unpleasant, bad - good, and Stable - changeable.
