Impact of an Engineering Mentorship Program on African-American Male High School Students' Perceptions and Self-Efficacy
Denson, Cameron D.; Hill, Roger B.
Journal of Industrial Teacher Education, v47 n1 p99-127 Spr 2010
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of an engineering mentorship program on African-American male high school students' perceptions of engineering as a viable career choice. In this study, indicators included students' perceptions of engineering, their self-efficacy in the area of mathematics, and their self-efficacy in the area of science. Using an independent t-test to determine a difference of statistical significance, inferential statistics were provided to answer the following research questions: (a) Is there a significant difference in perceptions of engineering for students who participated in the NCETE/NSBE mentorship program when compared with non-mentored students?, (b) Is there a significant difference in self-efficacy in the area of mathematics for students who participated in the NCETE/NSBE mentorship when compared with non-mentored students?, and (c) Is there a significant difference in self-efficacy in the area of science for students who participated in the NCETE/NSBE mentorship when compared with non-mentored students?
