Abstract

In this study, it is aimed to investigate the high school students’ chemistry motivation, chemistry laboratory anxiety, chemistry laboratory self-efficacy beliefs and their changes according to different variables. The study was designed in the relational survey model. The sample of the research consists of 642 high school students’. In the research, chemistry motivation scale, chemistry laboratory anxiety scale and chemistry laboratory self-efficacy beliefs scale were used as data collection tools. The difference between the chemistry motivation, chemistry laboratory anxiety and chemistry laboratory self-efficacy beliefs sub-dimensions according to class, gender and school type variables was examined by "Multivariate Variance Analysis MANOVA". The data meet the assumptions. As a result of the research, the high school students’ chemistry motivation, chemistry laboratory anxiety and chemistry laboratory self-efficacy beliefs averages are at medium levels. When the changes in the sub-dimensions are examined, it is seen that there was significant difference according to class, school type and class-school type interaction. This results are similar to other study results.
