This study aimed at identifying the attitudes of Al-Quds Open University students towards statistics and their relationship with achievement in the light of some variables .To achieve the objectives of this study, the attitudes towards statistics scale developed by Hilton and his colleagues, was implemented , after establishing its validity and reliability , on a sample consisting of ( 152 ) male and female students . This stratified random sample was chosen from Al-Quds Open University students in the Hebron Educational Region who were registered for the statistics course during the first semester of the academic year 2006/2007.Results of the study revealed that the attitudes of Al-Quds Open University students towards statistics were generally positive but low. Results also indicated that there are statistically significant differences in the attitudes of students towards statistics on the scale as a whole and on each factor that could be attributed to these variables: age, specialization, university-year level, secondary-school certificate stream and mid- term exam’s grade in statistics whereas gender didn’t create any significant differences . Final results revealed that there was no significant statistical relationship between the attitudes of students on the scale as a whole or on each factor and their achievement in statistics.
