Abstract

The aim of the study presented in this paper was to explore the attitudes of eighth grade students towards school, learning, various forms of assessment and activities in the teaching process. 194 eighth grade students from four primary schools in Serbia participated in the study. The study found that slightly less than half of the students in the sample were satisfied with school, but not with learning. Slightly over 40% expressed a negative attitude to learning in school, while 40% were indifferent. The form of assessment that students fear the most is oral assessment. Students differ in their (self)assessment of their own classroom participation in different subjects. Schools play an important role in students' positive adjustment when they function as psychologically healthy environments for development, resulting in students' greater school satisfaction.
