Variables N df r-value Level of significance Achievement in science ** Scientific attitude It is observed from the above table that a positive relationship is found between scientific attitude and achievement in science among secondary school.

Students’ attitudes and aspirations to study science reported during secondary school have indeed predicted whether they subsequently gained science-related degrees at university (Maltese & Tai, ; Morgan, Gelbgiser, & Weeden, ; Tai, Qi Liu, Maltese, & Fan, Attitude goals in secondary school science book.

The eventual goal of science education is to produce individuals capable of understanding and evaluating information that is, or purports to be, scientific in nature and of making decisions that incorporate that information appropriately, and, furthermore.

that a student shows in school.1 Engagement in schoolwork involves both behaviors (such as persistence, effort, attention) and attitudes (such as motivation, positive learning values, enthu-siasm, interest, pride in success).2 Thus, engaged students seek out activities, inside and outside the classroom, that lead to success or learning.

Students who leave school with the autonomy to set their own learning goals and with a sense that they can reach those goals are better equipped to learn throughout their Attitude goals in secondary school science book KB.
