Chi, Shaohui; Liu, Xiufeng; Gardella, Joseph A. – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2016
Service learning typically involves university students in teaching and learning activities for middle and high school students, however, measurement of university students' self-efficacy in science communication is still lacking. In this study, an instrument to measure university students' perceived self-efficacy in communicating science to…

Keefe, Lisa Madalon – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Institutions of higher learning are recently being held more accountable for the learning outcomes of their students. As such, universities have begun to actively measure and evaluate student learning and motivational outcomes in an effort to improve the successful outcomes of their students. To support this work, two studies were conducted to…

Dou, Remy; Brewe, Eric; Zwolak, Justyna P.; Potvin, Geoff; Williams, Eric A.; Kramer, Laird H. – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2016
The Modeling Instruction (MI) approach to introductory physics manifests significant increases in student conceptual understanding and attitudes toward physics. In light of these findings, we investigated changes in student self-efficacy while considering the construct's contribution to the career-decision making process. Students in the Fall 2014…

Price, Rebecca M.; Perez, Kathryn E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Improving students' understanding of how science works requires explicit instruction. Here, we test the efficacy of a module based on two previously published activities (the "Cube Puzzle" and the case study "Asteroids and Dinosaurs") that teach how science works to college science majors. Students also use the How Science…

Hanauer, David I.; Graham, Mark J.; Hatfull, Graham F. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2016
Curricular changes that promote undergraduate persistence in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines are likely associated with particular student psychological outcomes, and tools are needed that effectively assess these developments. Here, we describe the theoretical basis, psychometric properties, and predictive…

Villafa├▒e, Sachel M.; Garcia, C. Alicia; Lewis, Jennifer E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2014
Chemistry self-efficacy has been defined as a student's beliefs about his or her own capability to perform a given chemistry task. These chemistry self-efficacy beliefs can be influenced by students' experiences in a course, and eventually, these beliefs could affect students' decisions to continue into STEM related-careers. In this study, we…

Sherman-Morris, Kathleen; McNeal, Karen S. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
This study augments existing literature in understanding student perceptions about the geosciences; we examined the choice of major and science courses taken by 645 students at a large southeastern research university. Differences were examined between underrepresented minority (URM) and nonminority students. We compared responses regarding not…

Fallan, Lars; Opstad, Leiv – International Journal of Higher Education, 2016
The present study examines the self-efficacy levels and self-efficacy strength for male and female students in a course in Principle of Economics. The groups of male and female students may be mutually heterogeneous when it comes to personality types in a business school (Fallan & Opstad, 2014). This study does not treat the gender groups as…

Glenn, Tina Heard – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Academic achievement of public school students in the United States has significantly fallen behind other countries. Students' lack of knowledge of, or interest in, basic science and math has led to fewer graduates of science, technology, engineering, and math-related fields (STEM), a factor that may affect their career success and will certainly…

Pon-Barry, Heather; Packard, Becky Wai-Ling; St. John, Audrey – Computer Science Education, 2017
A dilemma within computer science departments is developing sustainable ways to expand capacity within introductory computer science courses while remaining committed to inclusive practices. Training near-peer mentors for peer code review is one solution. This paper describes the preparation of near-peer mentors for their role, with a focus on…
