MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between classroom environment and student attitudes toward school in a selected multiage classroom. The sample consisted of 38 students who were part of the multiage unit from a single elementary school. The sample consisted of 19 female students and 19 male students from kindergarten, first grade, and second grade levels. Data were collected using a classroom environment survey and a student attitudes survey. Data were analyzed using a Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient test. The results indicated a significant relationship between classroom environment scores and attitude scores. Similarly, a significant relationship was realized between girls' perceptions of classroom environment and their attitudes toward school. Results also indicated that there was no significant relationship between boys' perceptions of classroom environment and their attitudes toward school. This study suggests that classroom environment influences student attitudes.
