Computing Attitudes Survey (CAS)

Computing Attitudes Survey (CAS)


The Computing Attitudes Survey (CAS) is an extension of the Colorado Learning Attitudes about Science Survey and measures novice-to-expert attitude shifts about the nature of knowledge and problem solving in computer science. It has five subscales related to different facets of attitudes measured on the survey (transfer, personal interest, problem solving strategies, real world connections, and fixed mindset). Validity and reliability of the CAS has been evaluated with first-year undergraduate students in a variety of classes for both majors and non-majors in computing fields at multiple institutions.
