ABSTRACT

This study investigated the relationship between science process skills and student attitude toward physics

in senior secondary school in Aliero metropolis. The study adopted a descriptive survey design and data

were largely descriptive by nature. Two set of questionnaires namely; Science Process Skills Test (SPST)

and Attitudes toward Physics Questionnaire (ATPQ) was used for Data collection constructed by the

researcher. These were administered to a sample of 203 students selected from three secondary schools

in Aliero metropolis out of which 165 filled questionnaires were returned to the researcher. The major

findings of the study indicate that the students’ knowledge of science process skills is poor, the student’s

attitudes towards physics are good and there is a significant positive relationship between students’

knowledge of science process skills and their attitudes towards physics. Based on the findings, it was

concluded that students should be exposed to science process skills for the betterment of their future life

and the society as well, the level of students’ attitudes toward physics is good but not enough, as such,

positive attitudes of students should be improved so that they can be able to think, to reflect and to

associate with ideas related to physics.
