Huang, Wen – Interactive Learning Environments, 2022
Traditional science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is sometimes criticized for lacking approaches to present real-world practices and phenomena beyond naked eyes. Head-mounted display virtual reality (HMD VR) provides opportunities to solve this issue. However, little is known about the impact of this approach on…

Heiss, Raffael; Schmuck, Desirée; Matthes, Jörg; Eicher, Carolin – SAGE Open, 2021
Citizen science research has been rapidly expanding in the past years and has become a popular approach in youth education. We investigated key drivers of youth participation in a citizen social science school project and the effects of participation on scientific and topic-related (i.e., political) interest and efficacy. Findings suggest that…

Shaukat, Sadia; Vishnumolakala, Venkat Rao; Alghamdi, Amani K. Hamdan – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education, 2020
This study sought to explore the science efficacy beliefs of in-service teachers from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) (n = 226), Pakistan (n = 130), and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) (n = 99) by administering the Science Teaching Efficacy Belief Instrument (STEBI-B) in a cross-sectional survey research design. A comparison of the three datasets…

McBride, Eileen; Oswald, W. Wyatt; Beck, Lindsey A.; Vashlishan Murray, Amy – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2020
Research in science education confirms the importance of self-efficacy in students' persistence and success in the sciences. The current study examined the role of science self-efficacy in nonspecialist, arts and communication-oriented students encountering science in a general education context. Participants (N = 275) completed a beginning- and…

Miles, Jeffrey A.; Naumann, Stefanie E. – International Journal of Science Education, 2021
Historically women have been underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Some scholars have suggested that science self-concept perceptions have contributed to this gender gap. We propose and empirically examine a model of the relationships between gender, sexual orientation, science self-efficacy,…

Jones, M. Gail; Lee, Tammy; Carrier, Sarah; Madden, Lauren; Cayton, Emily; Chesnutt, Katherine; Ennes, Megan; Huff, Pamela; Phillips, Lanette – Science Educator, 2021
Youth often fail to see themselves in the role of a scientist or engineer and they may lack the confidence to believe they can be successful in STEM courses and careers. This study investigated students wearing lab coats as one strategy to build science academic self-concept and self-efficacy in science. Teachers in four elementary schools had…

Kartal, Tezcan; Kiziltepe, Ibrahim Serdar; Kartal, Busra – Journal of Education in Science, Environment and Health, 2022
The technology acceptance model (TAM) is a widely used framework to investigate factors influencing technology use in education. TAM refers to a person's technology-related attitudes and beliefs influencing intention to use and actual use of technology and seeks predictors of behaviors whether to accept or reject using technology. There are…

Kirbulut, Zubeyde Demet; Uzuntiryaki-Kondakci, Esen – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Current studies reveal that meta-level variables are very important in learning; however, little research has been devoted to the role of metaconceptual and meta-affective variables on student achievement. With the aim of filling this gap in the literature, the present study investigated the relationship between metavariables (metaconceptual…

Kartal, Tezcan; Dilek, Irem – International Journal on Social and Education Sciences, 2021
Science teaching efficacy belief (STEB) is of paramount importance as it motivates teachers to teach science or hinders them from teaching science. Preservice teachers' efficacy beliefs may change during their method courses. Knowing how pre-service teachers' beliefs change over time can significantly contribute to teacher educators to improve…

O'Connor, Bennett – ProQuest LLC, 2018
Science self-efficacy is critical to the achievement and participation of students in science. The purpose of this study was to explore the factors (age, attitudes towards math, school climate, school rigorous expectations, and the number of advanced math and science courses taken) contributing to science self-efficacy in an Early College High…
