Bu çalışmada amaç ortaokul öğrencilerinin fen bilimlerine ilişkin başarılarının olası bilimsel epistemolojik yordayıcılarını araştırmaktır. Bu amaçla çalışmada ilişkisel araştırma yöntemi tercih edilmiştir. Araştırmaya ortaokul 5., 6. ve 8. sınıf düzeyinde olan 100 öğrenci dahil edilmiştir. Araştırmanın verileri Fen Bilimleri Başarı Testi ve Bilimsel Epistemolojik İnanç Ölçeği ile toplanmıştır. Veri analizinde doğrusal regresyon analizi tekniği kullanılmıştır. Araştırmadan elde edilen sonuçlara göre öğrencilerin genel olarak başarı düzeylerinin düşük olduğu, bilimsel epistemolojik inançlarının ise gelişmiş düzeyde olduğu belirlenmiştir. Bu tezat duruma paralel olan bir diğer önemli sonuç ise öğrencilerin bilimsel epistemolojik inançlarının fen bilimleri başarısını istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bir şekilde yordamadığıdır. Sonuç olarak fen bilimleri başarısı ve bilimsel epistemolojik inançların ilişkili olmadığı gözlenmiştir.
