Robnett, Rachael D.; Chemers, Martin M.; Zurbriggen, Eileen L. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2015
Prior research shows that undergraduates tend to identify more strongly with the field of science after participating in scientific research. However, mediators that might account for this association are not well understood. In the current study, we propose that science self-efficacy may serve this mediational function. Specifically, data from a…
