Dominguez, Casey B. K.; Smith, Keith W.; Williams, J. Michael – Journal of Political Science Education, 2017
This study tests, and finds support, for the hypotheses that a student who majors in political science will have stronger feelings of political competence and will be more willing to engage in hypothetical political actions than two peer groups: (a) those who major in other fields and (b) those who show an interest in politics but have not studied…

McMahon, Susan D.; Wernsman, Jamie; Rose, Dale S. – Elementary School Journal, 2009
In this study, 149 low-income, ethnically heterogeneous, fourth- and fifth-grade students completed self-report surveys in the fall and spring of 1 academic year. We examined classroom climate (satisfaction, cohesion, friction, task difficulty, and competition) and school belonging in relation to language arts and math and science self-efficacy,…

McKim, Aaron J.; Velez, Jonathan J.; Clement, Haley Q. – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2017
The educational importance of teacher self-efficacy necessitates research into variables presumed to significantly influence teacher self-efficacy. In the current study, the role of personal and programmatic variables on the self-efficacy of school-based agriculture teachers was explored. Self-efficacy was measured in five aspects of the…

Sha, Li; Schunn, Christian; Bathgate, Meghan – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2015
Cumulatively, participation in optional science learning experiences in school, after school, at home, and in the community may have a large impact on student interest in and knowledge of science. Therefore, interventions can have large long-term effects if they change student choice preferences for such optional science learning experiences. To…

Flores, Ingrid M. – Research in Higher Education Journal, 2012
Engaging students in inquiry-based learning is viewed by the science education community as the cornerstone of science education reform. Pre-service teachers often enter science methods courses in teacher education credential programs with significant trepidation of science, a lack of strong science content knowledge, a lack of confidence in…

Amelink, Catherine T.; Artis, Sharnnia; King Liu, Tsu-Jae – Community College Journal of Research and Practice, 2015
Despite the awareness of the importance of self-efficacy, this concept has been studied in a limited sense among community college students (Collins & Bissell, 2004), but it has been shown to be significantly related to career decisions among enrollees (Kelly & Hatcher, 2013). The literature does not address what types of experiences can…

Hong, Rebecca C.; Jun, Alexander – Metropolitan Universities, 2012
Higher education institutions have struggled with the underrepresentation of female students in the STEM majors. The authors investigate the USC-MESA program and the role of women's self-efficacy perceptions in mathematics and science. It is crucial to understand the theory of self-efficacy in examining historically underrepresented populations in…
