Survey of Attitudes Towards Statistics (SATS-36)

The purpose of this survey is to help me evaluate your attitudes towards statistics at the beginning and end of the course.

You will be asked to rate your level of agreement with 40 statements (across 2 pages). Your responses will NOT affect your grade in any way -- and I will NOT look at individual student responses until after the semester ends -- so please answer as honestly as you can.

Completing this survey will count for 5% of your unit score. In other words, your test will account for 5% less of your unit score if you complete this survey.
