The statistical treatments that were used in this study are Independent T-test and One way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) to determine the significant difference assessment of respondents about scientific attitude inventory when grouped according to their profile characteristics. On the other hand, the data statistical treatments that were used to determine the significant relationship of scientific attitude and academic performance is Spearman’s Rho Correlation Coefficient. The findings of the study revealed that there is no significant difference between scientific attitude and profile characteristics of the respondents.
