The aim of this research was to explore the relationship among students' attitudes toward programming, gender and academic achievement in programming. The scale used for measuring students' attitudes toward programming was developed by the researcher and consisted of 35 five-point Likert type items in four subscales. The scale was administered to 179 students who enrolled in introductory computer programming course. Overall reliability of the scale was found as 0.96. The mean score of students' attitudes was 3.59 that lead us hard to say that students had positive attitude toward computer programming. It was found that there was a significant positive correlation between students' attitudes and their achievements in programming. The results showed that male students had more positive attitudes toward programming than female students. (Contains 3 tables and 1 footnote.)
