
Would you like to try the CS w/ QSEN integration activity on your own another time?
Would you like to try the CS w/ QSEN integration activity as a small group activity another
time?
Would you like to try the CS w/ QSEN integration activity as a classroom discussion another
time?
 Develop a Likert scale questionnaire regarding level of self-confidence (Shell, Murphy,
& Bruning, 1989)

0 = poor level of confidence, 5 = average level of self-confidence, 10 highly self-confident
 My level of confidence with completing the CS w/QSEN integration alone is:
 My level of confidence with completing the CS w/QSEN integration in a small group is:
 My level of confidence with completing the CS w/ QSEN integration in an open discussion
classroom setting is:
 Develop a Likert scale questionnaire about general overall opinion
 0---did not like, 5---no opinion, 10---liked it a lot
 My overall general opinion of the CS w/ QSEN integration is:
