Abstract: The present study reports the development and score validation of an instrument for measuring anxieties students experience in college chemistry laboratories. Factor analytic evidence from an initial sample (n = 361) of college chemistry students shows the Chemistry Laboratory Anxiety Instrument (CLAI) measures five constructs: working with chemicals, using equipment and procedures, collecting data, working with other students, and having adequate time. Additional analyses with a second sample (n = 598) show t… Show more

“…A possible explanation to this finding might be resulted from the time needed to do extra work to recollect data. Moreover, the result that pre-service teachers' affective expectation about the instruments was not met after ADI instruction is consistent with the literature showing that students have high anxiety about using equipment and chemicals (Kaya & Cetin, 2012) and they need time and opportunity to interact with them to decrease their anxiety (Bowen, 1999;Högström, Ottander, & Benckert, 2010).…”

“…Chemistry Laboratory Anxiety Scale developed by Bowen (1999) and translated to Turkish by Azizoğlu and Uzuntiryaki (2006) was used for this Anxiety Scale. CLAx scale is a five point Likert type scale consisting of 20 statements [15 statements that support anxiety (positive) and 5 statements that do not support it (negative)] and four sub dimensions.…”

“…However, although there a lot of important studies for improving chemistry teaching and learning, and chemistry is very important for students' academic improvement, the achievement level of students in the subject still remains low. Therefore, affective dimensions of learning such as anxiety, attitudes, and self-efficacy are perceived as important predictors of student performance in laboratory situations (Bowen, 1999).…”
