This edition of How to Measure Attitudes draws on examples from a broader range of disciplines and professions than the first edition. It helps novice evaluators with the difficult task of assessing whether the affective and attitude objectives of a programme have been met. The most commonly used attitude measures are described and sources of existing measurement instruments are listed. If no existing instrument is appropriate, step-by-step instructions are given enabling readers to construct their own. Methods for analysing and reporting attitude data are also included.
