Ziegler, Albert; Heller, Kurt A.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v11 n3 p144-51 Spr 2000
Students (N=379) in the 8th grade of German college preparatory schools, prior to formal chemistry instruction, were evaluated for prior knowledge of chemistry, their self-concept regarding chemistry, their gender-bound attitudes toward chemistry, and their fear of chemistry. Findings indicated that girls already expressed significantly lower levels of self-confidence regarding chemistry than did boys. (Contains references.) (DB)
