The High School Longitudinal Survey (HSLS:09) is a nationally-representative, longitudinal study of over 23,000 9th graders from 944 schools in 2009. This study follows students throughout secondary and postsecondary years collecting data on student trajectories, major fields of study, career paths, and STEM interest. The study's Base Year was 2009 and the First Follow-up was conducted in 2012, when most of the cohort were 11th graders. The following two questions, along with their findings, are presented: (1) How did student confidence in ability to do math and science assignments change during high school?; and (2) How did students' self-assessments of their own math abilities and perceptions of how others assessed their math abilities change during high school?
