The paper describes the results of a research study investigating the attitudes of university students to concepts associated with health and healthy lifestyle by means of a semantic differential. The use of semantic differential scales to detect attitude change and differences in attitudes in classroom lessons was studied with regard to A semantic differential study of group attitudes toward selected concepts in sport book dimensions, reliability of scales, sensitivity, and construct validity.

Two lessons in mathematics differing in terms of intrinsic interest were designed for each of two Grade 8 and two Grade 12 by: 6. Surveys or questionnaires using semantic differential scale survey feature is the most reliable way to get information on people’s emotional attitude towards a topic of interest.

Charles Egerton Osgood, a famous American psychologist, invented the semantic differential scale so that this “connotative meaning” of emotional attitude towards entities can be recorded and put to good use. In order to measure the meaning of the concept, the semantic differentiator usually uses a five or seven point scale, based on a list of bipolar paired terms, with opposite meaning.

Previous factor analyses have often been performed on the sub-jects-by-scales matrix summed over concepts, or. Semantic-differential items use a bipolar adjective list or pair of descriptive statements that examinees use to select a response option out of a range of values that best matches their agreement.

Likert-type items include a declarative statement followed by several levels of agreement along a span of (usually) five to seven response options.

The most popular of these methods has been the summated rating method generally known as the Likert scale. For example, most of the attitude scales reported in Shaw and Wright () are Likert scales.
