Perceptions of Student-Teacher Relationships, Self-Efficacy, and Subject Matter Retention in a Secondary Chemistry Course
Bechtel, Michael Dean
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Edgewood College
This was a study of students who had completed a chemistry course taught by one instructor in a large urban high school during 2009-2010. It was conducted in two phases: Phase One assessed self-efficacy, teaching practices, and subject matter retention taken 16 months after course completion. Phase Two consisted of a multiple-choice final exam retaken 17 months after course completion. Phase One results showed positive relations between teaching practices and retention of chemistry subject matter. Phase Two results showed positive relations between teaching practices, student-teacher relationships, and perceived self-efficacy. Implications for future research were offered.
