Griggs, Marissa Swaim; Rimm-Kaufman, Sara E.; Merritt, Eileen G.; Patton, Christine L. – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2011
The current analyses address two primary research aims: 1) Does students' anxiety in mathematics and science predict their self-efficacy in each subject area? The authors hypothesized that students' anxiety in mathematics and science would be negatively associated with their self-efficacy in each area. 2) Does being in a "Responsive Classroom[R]"…

Huang, Chiungjung – European Journal of Psychology of Education, 2013
A meta-analysis of 187 studies containing 247 independent studies (N = 68,429) on gender differences in academic self-efficacy identified an overall effect size of 0.08, with a small difference favoring males. Moderator analysis demonstrated that content domain was a significant moderator in explaining effect size variation. Females displayed…

Moseley, Christine; Utley, Juliana – Journal of Elementary Science Education, 2006
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of an earth systems science course (integrated mathematics and science content) on preservice elementary teachers' mathematics and science teaching efficacy. Paired t-tests revealed that the personal mathematics and science teaching efficacy and science teaching outcome expectancy significantly…

DeChenne, Sue Ellen; Enochs, Larry – Online Submission, 2010
An instrument to measure the teaching self-efficacy of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) GTAs is adapted from a general college teaching instrument (Prieto Navarro, 2005) for the specific teaching environment of the STEM GTAs. The construct and content validity and reliability of the final instrument are indicated. The final…

DeChenne, Sue Ellen; Enochs, Larry G.; Needham, Mark – Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2012
The graduate experience is a critical time for development of academic faculty, but often there is little preparation for teaching during the graduate career. Teaching self-efficacy, an instructor's belief in his or her ability to teach students in a specific context, can help to predict teaching behavior and student achievement, and can be used…

Dibattista, Liborio; Morgese, Francesca – Science & Education, 2013
For quite some time, many EU and Italian Ministry of Education official documents have warmly suggested the introduction of the history and the philosophy of science in the teaching of science disciplines at school. Accordingly, there is a shared agreement between pedagogists and science historians about the efficacy of this approach towards an…
