Abstract

Purpose of Study: This research was conducted to ascertain the students' attitude towards Physics subject in Muaro Jambi High School based on attitude indicator from Test of Science-Related Attitudes (TOSRA).


Methodology: A quantitative survey was used for the study. The subjects of the study were students of 458 students in senior high school 1, 4, 5, and 8 in Muaro Jambi.

The dimensions of normality of scientists were to have a sufficient category of 47.4% for a total of 217 out of 458 students. The dimensions of career interest in the field of physics are categorized a good at 38.3% for a total of 175 out of 458 students, and motivation has a good at 42.1% for a total of 193 out of 458 students. There is a relationship between motivation and attitudes of students in motivation in senior high school 1 Muaro Jambi with a r-value of 0.518 and positive, of students in senior high school 4 with a r-value of 0.832 and positive, of students in senior high school 5 with a value of r 0.746 and positive, of students in senior high school 8 with a value of r 0.623 and positive.


Implications: Based on the research results , the indicators that meet the criteria are needed to investigate to improve the results of these indicators, namely the indicator of scientists’ normality and interest in a physics career.
