The purpose of this study was to provide a detailed description of completing the Attitudes and Avatars Instrument in the classroom and explore the feasibility and acceptability of the instrument.


The descriptive study included three written open-ended questions for data collection to which young adolescent boys responded after completing the Attitudes and Avatars Instrument.


Fifty-nine boys between 11 and 14 years of age completed the instrument in the time allotted and had an overall positive reaction.


As the Attitudes and Avatars Instrument continues to develop as a screening instrument, it is imperative to obtain feedback from boys of diverse races and ethnicities.
