The "Cannot Decide" Option in Thurstone-Type Attitude Scales.
Madden, Theodore M.; Klopfer, Frederick J.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v38 n2 p259-64 Sum 1978, 78
Sociology students were administered two Thurstone-type attitude scales under two conditions (with or without a "cannot decide" option), and a measure of ambiguity tolerance. The "cannot decide" option was used by a slight majority of students when available, but usage was not related to ambiguity tolerance. (Author/JKS)
