Zeidan, Afif
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v8 n5 p783-800 Oct 2010
The aims of the study were to investigate (a) the relationship between the attitudes toward biology and perceptions of the biology learning environment among grade 11 students in Tulkarm District, Palestine and (b) the effect of gender and residence of these students on their attitudes toward biology and on their perceptions of the biology learning environment. The study used a 30-item Attitudes Toward Biology Questionnaire and a 32-item Learning Environment Questionnaire. The association between attitudes toward biology and the biology learning environment were significant, with a correlation coefficient of 0.366. The results of the study indicated that there were significant gender differences in attitudes toward biology and in perceptions of the learning environment, favoring females; however, there were no significant residence differences in attitudes toward biology and in perceptions of the learning environment.
