The Attitudes Toward Science Inventory (ATSI) is a quantitative instrument used to determine (a) how attitudes toward science of nonscience college students compare with attitudes of science majors, and (b) whether attitudes toward science change with instruction.
The link provided is to a study that validates the ATSI as part of a larger study measureing attitudes toward science.
LAESE uses a number of Likert scale items to identify longitudinal changes in the self-efficacy of undergraduate students studying engineering. LAESE can be used with any students studying engineering. A high school instrument, based on LAESE, was developed and tested by the Female Recruits Explore Engineering (FREE) Project.
The link provides access to the LAESE, information about the LAESE, and reviews on this instrument.
ITEST projects are presenting at conferences around the country this spring and summer. Details about where and when you can see your colleagues' work are included in this handout for your reference. Conferences include NARST, AERA, ICQI and ISTE!
