Measuring Attitude Towards Chemistry, Biology, and Math at a Hispanic-Serving Institution

submitted on 02.11.2020, 22:02 and posted on 09.11.2020, 20:47 by Jordan Chang, Erik Menke
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.
