study attitude, academic achievement, study attitude scale
The author compared study attitudes of low and high achievers by using a self-developed study attitude scale (SAS) consisting of 36 items. Academic performance was measured through marks obtained by the students in the 9th grade examination conducted by the external body. The analysis revealed that the study attitude of secondary school students was related with their academic achievement. A t-test for independent samples showed that there was a significant difference between the study attitude of male, female, rural and urban students.
