  • Nihan SölpükEmail author


The effect of attitude on student achievement was examined in this meta-analysis study. A total of 760 research studies were collected during the literature review, out of which 90 were included in the meta-analysis. The 90 research studies were compiled to obtain a sample size of 78,015 subjects. The results of the random effect model showed that attitude has a medium-level positive effect on student achievement. The moderators identified for the study were publication year, type of publication, the country (culture) , the course and the education, of which publication year, type of publication, the course and the education were found to be moderator variables.
