Design, Engineering & Technology (DET) Survey
The Design, Engineering and Technology (DET) Survey was developed to assess K-12 teachers’ perceptions of engineering and their familiarity with teaching design, engineering and technology. The survey consists of 40 self-report items answered through a 4-point Likert scale (1=strongly disagree, 2=disagree, 3=agree, and 4 = strongly agree). The items measure four factors: importance of DET (19 items), familiarity with DET (8 items), stereotypical characteristics of engineers (7 items) and barriers in integrating DET (6 items).
