Dr.Sajna Jaleel, Smt. Sherly Philip

Abstract


Science teaching helps students to explore their world and discover new things. Science, being an ideal subject makes students to become curious and helps in developing scientific attitude. Scientific attitudes refer to the behavioral dispositions expected in individuals who intend to become successful scientists. Scientific attitudes include respect for evidence, honesty, creativity, flexibility, curiosity, objectivity and skepticism. Achievement in science subjects needs a positive attitude from the part of students. In this paper, the investigator tried to find out whether there exists any relationship between Scientific Attitude and Achievement in Physics of Secondary School Students for the total sample and for the subsample based on Gender. The investigator also finds out whether there exist any significant differences in the Scientific Attitude and Achievement in Physics among Secondary School Students based on Gender. Proper statistical techniques were used for collecting standardizing and analyzing the data.
