This page describes attitude surveys, one of a series of Classroom Assessment Techniques (CATs) provided by the Field-tested Learning Assessment Guide (FLAG) website. The CATs of FLAG were constructed as a resource for science, technology, engineering and mathematics instructors to emphasize deeper levels of learning and to give instructors valuable feedback during a course. The attitude surveys consist of a series of statements in which students are asked to express their agreement or disagreement using a scale, thus providing information on the studentsí perceptions of their classroom experience. The site provides an overview of this assessment instrument, including information about how to use an attitude survey. This site is also linked to a set of discipline-specific "tools" that can be downloaded for immediate use, as well as supplementary links and sources are included to further explore this assessment technique.
