Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the stability of attitudes toward the course and field of statistics over a year's time. Students were surveyed at the end of an intermediate (second) coure in statistics and again one year later. In line with previous studies, attitude scale scores were correlated with course grade. It was expected that this correlation would be positive but low as was found by others. Attitude scores were also correlated with GRE scores.
