The Attitude toward
the Subject of Chemistry Inventory (ASCI V1), as well as two modified versions
of the ASCI V1, were administered twice (pre- and post-semester) to three
samples of students. Confirmatory factor
analysis (CFA) was performed to compare the survey structure with prior work by others, and showed similar structure for the three versions. The survey results were then evaluated to compare student attitude with respect to chemistry, biology, and math as well as changes in attitudes. This work was approved by UC Merced's IRB.
