González, Antonio; Fernández, María-Victoria Carrera; Paoloni, Paola-Verónica – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2017
Recent research on achievement in science asserts that motivation, emotion, and metacognition are important driving forces for learning. This study sought to examine the relationships between two physics class emotions (hope and anxiety), their motivational predictors (instrumentality and self-efficacy), and their effects on metacognitive problem…

Lancaster, Kendra; Knobloch, Neil; Jones, Amy; Brady, Colleen – Journal of Extension, 2013
The explorative study reported here describes youth participants in three animal science-related career development events from 2010. Variables included students' self-efficacy, task value motivation, career interests, and to what extent they utilized resources in preparation. It was concluded that all three groups were self-efficacious,…

Kirbulut, Zubeyde Demet – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2014
In this study, the relationship between students' chemistry self-efficacy beliefs and metacognitive awareness was investigated utilizing a path model. There were 268 chemistry high school students (59% 10th grade and 41% 11th grade) participated in the study. The students took two-hour chemistry course in the 9th and 10th grade and three-hour…

Kerr, Barbara; Robinson Kurpius, Sharon E. – High Ability Studies, 2004
Although gifted girls are closing the gap in math and science achievement, they continue to lose interest and drop out of math/science careers. An intervention was developed for talented at-risk young women that emphasized enhancing career identity and exploration, building science self-efficacy and self-esteem and reducing risky behaviors.…
