Jack, Brady Michael; Lin, Huann-shyang; Yore, Larry D. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2014
This study investigates how affective and self-related factors impact participation in science learning and environmental awareness and responsibility. Using PISA 2006 datasets from Taiwan and Canada having similar level of science competency, the model for this study verifies and expands an earlier model by examining the relationships among…

Larose, Simon; Ratelle, Catherine F.; Guay, Frederic; Senecal, Caroline; Harvey, Marylou – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2006
The present study strove to better understand the associations between the development of late adolescents' self-efficacy beliefs toward science, and vocational and academic adjustment (i.e., career decidedness, scientific interests, science achievement, and persistence in science), while considering the potential moderating role of gender.…

Dionne, Liliane; Reis, Giuliano; Trudel, Louis; Guillet, Gabriel; Kleine, Leonard; Hancianu, Corina – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Science fairs have been for many years a popular school activity in North America. They are a venue for the popularization of science and consequently an important encouragement for the pursuit of careers in science or engineering. However, little is known about students' perceived motives for participating in local or national science fairs and…

Woods-McConney, Amanda; Oliver, Mary Colette; McConney, Andrew; Schibeci, Renato; Maor, Dorit – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
Given international concerns about students' pursuit (or more correctly, non-pursuit) of courses and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, this study is about achieving a better understanding of factors related to high school students' engagement in science. The study builds on previous secondary analyses of Programme for…

Blotnicky, Karen A.; Franz-Odendaal, Tamara; French, Frederick; Joy, Phillip – International Journal of STEM Education, 2018
Background: A sample of 1448 students in grades 7 and 9 was drawn from public schools in Atlantic Canada to explore students' knowledge of science and mathematics requirements for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. Also explored were their mathematics self-efficacy (MSE), their future career interests, their…

Yerdelen, Sündüs; McCaffrey, Adam; Klassen, Robert M. – Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, 2016
This study investigated the longitudinal association between students' anxiety and procrastination and the relation of self-efficacy for self-regulation to these constructs. Latent Growth Curve Modeling was used to analyze data gathered from 182 undergraduate students (134 female, 48 male) at 4 times during a semester. Our results showed that…

Deacon, Christopher; Hajek, Allyson; Schulz, Henry – International Journal of Science Education, 2017
Many post-secondary institutions provide training and resources to help GTAs fulfil their teaching roles. However, few programmes focus specifically on the teaching competencies required by GTAs who work with undergraduate students in laboratory settings where learning tends to be more active and inquiry based than in classroom settings. From a…

Symons, Sarah L.; Colgoni, Andrew; Harvey, Chad T. – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
We describe interim results of an ongoing longitudinal pedagogical study investigating the efficacy of the Honours Integrated Science Program (iSci). We describe the pedagogical methods we use to prompt research skill development in a model from instructor-dependence to independent original research. We also describe a tool we use to help students…

Areepattamannil, Shaljan; Freeman, John G.; Klinger, Don A. – Social Psychology of Education: An International Journal, 2011
This study examined the effects of motivation to learn science, science self-beliefs, and science instructional practices on science achievement of 13,985 15-year-old students from 431 schools across Canada. Hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) analyses, while controlling for student- and school-level demographic characteristics, revealed the…

Van Nuland, Sonya E.; Rogers, Kem A. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2017
In the anatomical sciences, e-learning tools have become a critical component of teaching anatomy when physical space and cadaveric resources are limited. However, studies that use empirical evidence to compare their efficacy to visual-kinesthetic learning modalities are scarce. The study examined how a visual-kinesthetic experience, involving a…

Ross, John A.; Scott, Garth; Bruce, Catherine D. – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
Recent research demonstrates that in many countries gender differences in mathematics achievement have virtually disappeared. Expectancy-value theory and social cognition theory both predict that if gender differences in achievement have declined there should be a similar decline in gender differences in self-beliefs. Extant literature is…

Zogheib, Salah – International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, 2015
Single computer courses offered at colleges of education are expected to provide preservice teachers with the skills and expertise needed to adopt computer technology in their future classrooms. However, preservice teachers still find difficulty adopting such technology. This research paper investigated relationships among preservice teachers'…

Sibbald, Tim – School Science and Mathematics, 2009
This article addresses a gap in the literature by developing a theory that bridges lesson study and self-efficacy. Since self-efficacy has been linked to student achievement, the theory is important as an explanatory mechanism linking lesson study to student achievement. The theory was developed using grounded theory based on primary source data…

Cash, Ceilidh Barlow; Letargo, Jessa; Graether, Steffen P.; Jacobs, Shoshanah R. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
Large class learning is a reality that is not exclusive to the first-year experience at midsized, comprehensive universities; upper-year courses have similarly high enrollment, with many class sizes greater than 200 students. Research into the efficacy and deficiencies of large undergraduate classes has been ongoing for more than 100 years, with…

Martin, Michael O.; Mullis, Ina V. S.; Foy, Pierre; Stanco, Gabrielle M. – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2012
For more than 50 years, the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) has been conducting comparative studies of educational achievement in a number of curriculum areas, including mathematics and science. TIMSS 2011 represents the fifth cycle of the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS),…
