This data collection tool has been developed by Moss and Trickett (1974) and adapted to Turkish by Kısakürek (1985). The researcher has rearranged it by scanning the field. In the survey the secondary schools they graduated from have been studied with t-test. In accordance with the findings, Graduates of Anatolian Teachers High School, compared to graduates of other schools, consider “teacher support”, “involvement”, “affiliation”, “order & organization” as more significant. Students’ views about “competition” and “rule clarity” have no significant differences in accordance with school types they graduated. Consequently, classroom climate is affected by many variants, so in education programmes the effect of every variant (sex, demographic specifications of students, the attitude of academics, formal and informal demands of students, the location of the institution) should be considered in the applications concerning classroom climate. In addition, the importance of subdimensions of classroom climate especially affiliation and rules should be asserted.
