DAILy AI Concept Inventory - questions related to artificial intelligence

Instruments

In this survey you will be asked to answer a series of questions related to artificial intelligence (AI). The purpose of these questions is to capture your pre-existing ideas about AI and AI concept knowledge before you start the Everyday AI program. So it’s totally OK if you are unsure of a lot of your answers - Just make your best guesses! We will not grade your answers. This survey data will be used to help us figure out what you have learned through this program (between the start and end of the program) so that we can make the program better!For for information, please contact Irene Lee
