When a student enters a science class at the start of the semester, how often does the science teacher consider the student's attitude toward science? Usually our concern is about his background in science, his intelligence, or if he will be a discipline problem. These areas are perhaps important but a study by DeRose (2) also reveals the importance of attitude. He indicates that the achievement of students in a particular class may depend to a large extent on the attitude of students toward that class.
