Predictors of Science Fair Participation Using the Theory of Planned Behavior.
Czerniak, Charlene M.; Lumpe, Andrew T.
School Science and Mathematics, v96 n7 p355-61 Nov 1996
Uses the Theory of Planned Behavior to examine factors that predict junior high and secondary students' (n=303) attitudes toward participating in district science fair competitions, beliefs about who would approve or disapprove of participation, and perceptions of control. Results indicate that science fair entry appears to be involuntary and that students have little control over it. (16 references) (JRH)
