This study examined associations between Turkish high school students' perceptions of their teachers' interpersonal behavior and their attitudes toward science and investigated what profiles could be discerned in class perceptions of these teachers. Data were collected with the Questionnaire on Teacher Interaction (QTI) and the Test of Science Related Attitudes (TOSRA). A total of 2342 students (Grades 9 to 11) from 81 classes (14 public schools) in three major Turkish cities participated in the study. Correlation analyses, regression analyses and analyses of variance revealed that students' perceptions of their teachers' interpersonal behavior were significantly associated with their attitudes and that a variety of interpersonal profiles could be distinguished.
