One may ask, why? As they impact behaviours, attitudes definitely influence individuals and the society as a whole. Measuring students’ attitudes, which are in part shaped during education, can be highly valuable in order to understand socio-scientific issues. It is thus of great importance not only to have instruments to measure these attitudes, but also to understand how they develop, change, evolve, and interact with other factors, and eventually to support decision-making, which is the main goal of Myint Swe Khine’s book Attitude Measurements in Science Education: Classic and Contem- porary Approaches. It has a clearly practical orientation towards the measurement of attitudes and includes many useful empirical studies illustrated by concrete examples, but also valuable theo- retical points, with implications for researchers, teachers, and students.
