Abstract: The main goal of teaching of science in general and chemistry in particular, is to help learners to understand an to interpret phenomena of the natural world by adopting a scientific approach. The level of students in scientific disciplines and particularly in chemistry is becoming lower; something known by almost of actors in the field of higher education. The difficulties are many and the causes are diverse. Despite the reform experienced by the Morrocan university, the results of our teaching are still not up to the needs of the labor market ( phenomenon of unemployed graduates and at the same time shortage qualified human resources in the labor market). We are wondering, if students are able towards the end of a stage of formation, to use the fundamental concepts supposed to be acquired, to explain certain phenomena and to predict others. In this research, our objectives is to put up an evidence concerning the difficulties of apprehensivness of concepts about chemical thermodynamics for students following their studies at the first year university option Science of Chemistry (SMC) subject dealing with the relationship between the difficulties and practices of evaluation during the course. We were searching for the problems of apprenhensivness due to student’s characteristics and the system of teaching of this course. In fact, we have realised a relation with teachers teaching at the first year (SMC) and we have distributed a questionnaire for their students. After that we had examined evaluation of practices in this course following the same stages that had been followed before in order to look for the ralationship between practices and difficulties.
