Hacieminoglu, Esme – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Purpose: In the literature, there are lots of quantitative studies regarding students' attitudes, and results of the studies revealed that students have negative attitudes towards science. Therefore, it is necessary to study the factors that predict the attitudes of the students towards science taking into account the factors at both the school…

Sumarni, Woro; Susilaningsih, Endang; Sutopo, Yeri – International Journal of Evaluation and Research in Education, 2018
Developing students' positive attitude toward learning is one of the important things, because some researchers mention that attitudes toward the subjects are related to academic achievement. Teachers, in the implementation of learning can evaluate attitudes toward the subjects, in order to know how students' attitude toward learning that is/has…

Price, C. Aaron; Kares, F.; Segovia, G.; Loyd, Aerika Brittian – Applied Developmental Science, 2019
We explore the understudied role of program staff in an out-of-school time (OST) program at a large science museum, which may be especially relevant for supporting underrepresented minority (URM) youth's interest in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) careers. Using a sequential explanatory mixed-method design, we surveyed 167 program…

Sirrakos, George, Jr.; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2017
This mixed-methods cross-national study investigated the effectiveness of reality pedagogy (an approach in which teachers become part of students' activities, practices and rituals) in terms of changes in student perceptions of their learning environment and attitudes towards science. A questionnaire was administered to 142 students in grades 8-10…

Chua, Kah-Eng; Karpudewan, Mageswary – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2017
Attitude towards learning science is a well-researched domain for more than four decades. Globally, studies on attitude still stay relevant following the decline in enrollment in science-related studies across many levels. Particularly, emergent of new sciences in this century calls for a shift in the content included in school science, to be more…

Navarro, Marianela; Förster, Carla; González, Caterina; González-Pose, Paulina – International Journal of Science Education, 2016
Understanding attitudes toward science and measuring them remain two major challenges for science teaching. This article reviews the concept of attitudes toward science and their measurement. It subsequently analyzes the psychometric properties of the "Test of Science-Related Attitudes" (TOSRA), such as its construct validity, its…

Hacieminoglu, Esme – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
Worldwide studies have revealed an important issue in that an increasing percentage of students within the X-Y age group are not interested in science. Many students, especially females, have negative feelings and attitudes toward science, which discourages them from continuing with scientific inquiries. There are limited studies related to the…

Valenti, S. S.; Masnick, A. M.; Cox, B. D.; Osman, C. J. – Science Education International, 2016
Although interest in science and math is often high in the elementary grades, interest in choosing science and math careers drops off beginning in junior high school for both genders, but especially for girls. By high school, a shift towards increased rigor is often accompanied by a lack of creativity in the way that scientific disciplines are…

Villafañe, Sachel M.; Lewis, Jennifer E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
Decisions about instruction, research, or policy often require the interpretation of student assessment scores. Increasingly, attitudinal variables are included in an assessment strategy, and it is important to ensure that interpretations of students' attitudinal status are based on instrument scores that apply similarly for diverse students. In…

Wichaidit, Patcharee Rompayom; Wichaidit, Sittichai – Journal of Science and Mathematics Education in Southeast Asia, 2016
Learning chemistry may be difficult for students for several reasons, such as the abstract nature of many chemistry concepts and the fact that students may view chemistry as irrelevant to their everyday lives. Teaching chemistry in familiar contexts and the use of multiple representations are seen as effective approaches for enhancing students'…

Peer, Jarina; Fraser, Barry J. – Learning Environments Research, 2015
Learning environment research provides a well-established approach for describing and understanding what goes on in classrooms and has attracted considerable interest in Singapore. This article reports the first study of science classroom environments in Singapore primary schools. Ten scales from the What Is Happening In this Class?,…
