Thomas, Julie A.; Strunk, Kamden K. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2017
This longitudinal study explored the ways parents' and teachers' expectancy for success influences 3rd-5th children's expectancy for success and achievement in science. Guided by an open-systems perspective and functional (Ballantine & Roberts, 2007) and expectancy-value (Eccles, 2005, 2007) theories, we focused on school related socialization…

Jocz, Jennifer Ann; Zhai, Junqing; Tan, Aik Ling – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
Recent research reveals that students' interest in school science begins to decline at an early age. As this lack of interest could result in fewer individuals qualified for scientific careers and a population unprepared to engage with scientific societal issues, it is imperative to investigate ways in which interest in school science can be…
