Out of 140 dissertations, totally 137 dissertations were included in detailed analysis because 3 of them were unauthorized. In this research, the dissertations were analyzed with document analysis in terms of some variables such as university, year, sample academic level and used mathematics attitude scales. As a result, descriptive statistics such as frequencies, percentages were also used by using a statistics program. As a result of the study, the findings indicated that mathematics attitude scales devoleped by Aşkar (1986), Erol (1989), Baykul (1990), Duatepe & Çilesiz (1999), Nazlıçiçek & Erktin (2002), Alkan, Bukova-Güzel & Elçin (2004), Öztuncay (2005) and Kabaca (2006) are the most common eight measurement instruments.
