Abstract

Abstract: This paper is a report on the validation of a new version of the Computer Attitude Questionnaire (CAQ) which is an instrument for measurement of student attitudes toward computers (comfort and learning with), empathy, creativity, and school. This new version, called CAQ N/I, was developed in response to a request for a more brief instrument to be used for a National Science Foundations’ Innovative Technology Experience for Students and Teachers (NSF ITEST) program research project. The CAQ N/I was found to have strong internal consistency reliability, content validity, and criterion-related validity. Cronbach’s Alpha for the instrument scales ranged from .71 to .87 with two samples of data spanning grades 6 to 12. The CAQ N/I was judged to be “acceptable” to “very good” for measurement of student attitudes toward learning with computers in middle and high school years. Appendix A presents the CAQ N/I.
