Test of Science Related Attitudes (TOSRA)

The Test of Science Related Attitudes (TOSRA) assesses science-related attitudes along seven dimensions: social implications of science, normality of scientists, attitude toward scientific inquiry, adoption of scientific attitudes, enjoyment of science lessons, leisure interest in science, and career interest in science. The TOSRA includes 70 items, each measured on a 5-point Likert scale; these items comprise 7 subscales with 10 items each.
