Shin, Sein; Lee, Jun-Ki; Ha, Minsu – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2017
Motivation to learn is an essential element in science learning. In this study, the role of career motivation in science learning was examined. In particular, first, a science motivation model that focused on career motivation was tested. Second, the role of career motivation as a predictor of STEM track choice was examined. Third, the effect of…
