Student Attitudes toward Science Learning: A Cross-National Study of American and Chinese Secondary School Students.
Ye, Renmin; Wells, Raymond R.; Talkmitt, Susan; Ren, Hanxia
This study investigates and compares American and Chinese secondary students' science achievement, their attitudes toward science, and other factors influencing science learning. The subjects, in Grades 7-12, include Chinese students (N=495) and American students (N=469). A survey of attitudes towards science developed by the authors was employed and the data used to analyze student achievement and attitudes toward science. The discussion of results centers on comparison of student attitudes toward science by country, grade level, and gender. Findings suggest that a student's nationality has a much greater effect on science attitudes than gender or grade level. (DDR)
