Zia Ur Rehman Zia Ur Rehman, Sadia Naz


The objective of this study was to uncover the relationship of the performance and attitude of science educators with their students’ academic achievements. For this purpose, a survey type questionnaire was set to find data regarding science educators’ academic/ professional qualifications and experience. To find the attitude of science educators towards science, a 50 items’ attitude scale containing five components was formulated and adapted from TOSRA. This questionnaire was completed by 80 secondary grade science educators located in 40 institutions with due consideration being paid to gender, urban/rural representation and inclusion of both private/public secondary institutions. Quantitative analysis of data specified an inverse correlation of educators’ academic as well as professional qualifications/teaching experience with their students’ academic performance. Most of the educators displayed an extremely positive attitude towards their respective subject. Also, a positive relationship was found between science educators’ attitude towards science and academic achievements of their pupils. More studies are required to ascertain the reasons for the negative correlation of educators’ academic/professional qualification/ experience with their students’ achievements and also to explore the variables that influence the attitude of educators towards science.
