The current study aims to explore the impact of using the Go-Chemist! app on students’ attitudes toward chemistry on colligative properties. This pretest-posttest quasi-experimental design study involved 71 twelfth-grade students in Jakarta, Indonesia. One class was randomly assigned to a treatment group which was taught using a mobile application and another class was assigned to a comparison group which was taught using e-books. The Attitude Toward Chemistry Lessons Scale (ATCLS) was administered before and after instruction to both groups. To analyze the data, we employed independent and paired sample t-tests. The results indicated that after the intervention, the gap in attitude scores between the two groups was statistically significant in favor of the intervention group. Students in the treatment group also showed a statistically significant improvement in average scores from pre- to post-administration with a large effect size. This reflected the use of the Go-Chemist! app effectively increases students’ positive attitudes toward chemistry lessons on the topic of colligative properties.


Keywords –Attitudes toward chemistry, colligative properties, Go-Chemist! app, mobile learning.
