Preservice Teachers' Epistemological Beliefs: A Study of Student and Course Characteristics
Baker, Peter B.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Old Dominion University
The research project described herein was designed to measure teacher education students' epistemological beliefs. Teacher education students' epistemological beliefs were compared according to participants' academic and demographic characteristics as well as characteristics of the courses in which students are enrolled at the time of study data collection. Participants included teacher education students currently studying in Old Dominion University's Darden College of Education. Results indicated that, while participants' epistemological beliefs and the development thereof are both, at times, related to their demographic and academic characteristics as well as the characteristics of the courses in which they were enrolled during the study, sometimes as statistically significant levels, further research needs to be conducted in order to further characterize the nature of these relationships, taking into consideration variables not accounted for in the current study.
