Wang, Ya-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2016
This study aimed to investigate the factors accounting for science learning self-efficacy (the specific beliefs that people have in their ability to complete tasks in science learning) from both the teacher and the student levels. We thus propose a multilevel model to delineate its relationships with teacher and student science hardiness (i.e.,…

Wagstaff, Iris R. – ProQuest LLC, 2014
This study was conducted in response to the growing concern about the lack of U.S. students majoring in STEM fields and pursuing STEM careers (NSF, 2013). In order for the U.S. to compete in a global economy that is increasingly technologically-based, a skilled STEM workforce is a necessity (National Academies, 2010). Understanding the factors…

Andersen, Lori; Chen, Jason A. – Science Education, 2016
The present study describes science expectancy-value motivation classes within a nationally representative sample of students who were U.S. ninth graders in 2009. An expectancy-value model was the basis for science-specific profile indicators (self-efficacy, attainment value, utility value, interest-enjoyment value). Using exploratory latent class…

Schulze, Salomé; van Heerden, Mark – South African Journal of Education, 2015
In the light of the poor academic achievement in science by secondary school students in South Africa, students' motivation for science learning should be enhanced. It is argued that this can only be achieved with insight into which motivational factors to target, with due consideration of the diversity in schools. The study therefore explored the…

Velayutham, Sunitadevi; Aldridge, Jill M. – Research in Science Education, 2013
The primary aim of this study was two-fold: 1) to identify salient psychosocial features of the classroom environment that influence students' motivation and self-regulation in science learning; and 2) to examine the effect of the motivational constructs of learning goal orientation, science task value and self-efficacy in science learning on…

Velayutham, Sunitadevi; Aldridge, Jill M.; Fraser, Barry – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of students' motivational beliefs (learning goal orientation, task value and self-efficacy) in science learning on students' self-regulation in the science classroom. The study also examines the moderating effect of gender on the proposed relationships. Data were collected from 719 boys…

Sheldrake, Richard – International Journal of Science Education, 2016
Understanding students' intentions to study science at upper-secondary school, at university, and to follow science careers continues as a central concern for international science education. Prior research has highlighted that students' science confidence has been associated with their intentions to study science further, although…

Antink-Meyer, Allison; Bartos, Stephen; Lederman, Judith S.; Lederman, Norman G. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
Recent years have witnessed a dramatic rise in the number of middle and high school students from Asian countries participating in U.S.-based summer experiences (Perlez & Gao, 2013). Although summer science camps have been shown to improve students' attitudes and interests related to science and science learning (Bhattacharyya, Mead &…

Carleton, Loran E.; Fitch, Jenelle C.; Krockover, Gerald H. – Educational Forum, 2008
Changes in teacher efficacy and attitudes toward teaching were examined throughout a teacher education program as teachers worked to integrate new skills into their science curriculum. Correlation coefficients were calculated for the changes. Positive correlation was observed between changes in attitude and self-efficacy. Negative correlation was…

Brown, Sherri L.; Ronau, Robert R. – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
While participating in single- and mixed-gender science and mathematics classes, ninth-grade urban high school students' (n = 118) academic self-concept, self-efficacy, and school climate perceptions were examined. Their perceptions were measured quantitatively from the Fennema-Sherman Mathematics (modified for Science) Attitude and the Patterns…

Yavas, Pervin Ünlü; Çagan, Sultan – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2017
The aim of this study was to develop a Likert type attitude scale for high school students with regard to high school physics lessons. The research was carried out with high school students who were studying in Ankara. First, the opinions of 105 high school students about physics lessons were obtained and then 55 scale items were determined from…

Koksal, Mustafa Serdar; Yaman, Suleyman – Science Educator, 2012
Recent research in educational psychology has shown that beliefs about knowing and learning have an effect on learning. These epistemological beliefs, which are categorized as certainty, simplicity of knowledge, existence of quick learning, and the fixed ability to learn, are related to educationally important cognitive and affective factors, such…
