Attitudes to Science.
This Likert-type attitude questionnaire was developed to evaluate the attitudes of secondary school students toward science. The questionnaire contains 5 subscales each comprising 12 item (6 positive, 6 negative). The subscales relate to the following 5 attitude objectives: interrelationship between sciences, relationship of science to other subjects, social and economic implications, interest, and objectivity. The instrument is accompanied by a paper describing the way in which the attitude measures were chosen and a pilot study of the instrument, including results from various statistical analyses of the pilot study. Among the statistical results presented are the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients for the test-retest reliabilities for each subscale and the full scale, and a "t" test for correlated means carried out on the mean scores for each group of students on the test and retest.
