I think that these questions are clear and easy to understand. I believe that the instructions could be more clearly presented. Perhaps bold-type would help emphasize what each of the answer choices refers to? Overall, I think that the questions certainly point to attitudes and students' understandings of astronomy. I mostly take issue at the layout of the survey. I think adding more space between each prompt could make it more navigable. In general, this is definitely a tool worth implementing.
