Attitudes Towards Gambling Scale (ATGS)


Assessment names: Attitudes Towards Gambling Scale (ATGS)

Scale overview: The Attitudes Towards Gambling Scale presents participants with eight items, which are rated on a five-point scale of agreement to indicate their views about gambling.


Response Type: Items are rated on a scale of agreement from 1 = strongly agree, 2 = agree, 3 = neither agree nor disagree, 4 = disagree, 5 = strongly disagree.

Scale items: The items include positive and negative statements about gambling.


Availability: The full set of eight items and labels for agreement can be found in the PsycTESTS reference.

The scale has been widely used with more than 55,000 participants: See Hellumbr├ąten Kristensen, et al. (2022) for a literature review.
