Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate how Korean elementary students' affective attitudes towards science learning affect their scientific achievement. To look at students' affective attitudes, we investigated the following domains: ‘self-confidence in learning science’, ‘recognition of self-enjoyment in learning science’, ‘recognition of fun in studying science’, and ‘perception for science and math curricula’. The results from this study are as follows: First, the results regarding Korean students' affective attitudes towards science learning in TIMSS 2007 compared to the results in TIMSS 2003, have very positive response rates and show an overall improvement. Second, the improvement in all domains in affective attitudes shows a positive impact on the students' scientific achievement.
