Summary or Abstract : An important consideration in the evaluation of a large scale educational program is the accurate assessment of student attitudes, opinions and behaviors. The present study used a multivariant analysis of variance approach to test six hypotheses for the response effect of wording the question in the first person versus the third person, and the comparability of response across three scale formats: Likert scale, bipolar rating scale and equal spaced interval rating scale. This was done for three mutually exclusive types of questions: "person referent," "object referent" and "behavior referent." Results failed to support four of the six hypotheses. In general, nonsignificant differences were noted between first person and third person wordings for "person referent" and "object referent" questions. The reverse was noted for "behavior referent" questions. A significant scale format effect for all three types of questions, and a significant scale format by person interaction effect for "object referent" and "behavior referent" question were noted. The Likert scale appeared preferable to the bipolar rating scale for "person referent" and "object referent" questions. The equal spaced interval rating scale appeared preferable to the Likert scale and bipolar rating scale for "behavior referent" questions..
