Aydeniz, Mehmet; Ozdilek, Zehra – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of an intervention on pre-service science teachers' self-efficacy to teach science through argumentation and explore the challenges they experienced while implementing argumentation. Forty pre-service science teachers in their final semester of schooling participated in an intervention that…

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]"…

Ogan-Bekiroglu, Feral; Aydeniz, Mehmet – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2013
This study explored the impact of explicit instruction on argumentation-based pedagogy, coupled with modelling and hands-on learning activities on pre-service physics teachers' perceived self-efficacy to teach science through argumentation. Participants consisted of 24 pre-service physics teachers attending an established teacher education program…

Herrington, Deborah G.; Yezierski, Ellen J.; Bancroft, Senetta F. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2016
The purpose of this study was to compare the ability of different instruments, independently developed and traditionally used for measuring science teachers' beliefs in short-term interventions, to longitudinally measure teachers' changing beliefs. We compared the ability of three self-report instruments (Science Teaching Efficacy Belief…

Richardson, Greer M.; Byrne, Laurel L.; Liang, Ling L. – Applied Environmental Education and Communication, 2018
Recognizing that teaching efficacy beliefs influence pedagogical content knowledge, this study assesses the impact of a general methods course on preservice teachers' efficacy beliefs and instructional planning of environmental education content. The course used explicit and visible strategies to support pedagogical and content knowledge…

DeBarger, Angela Haydel; Penuel, William R.; Harris, Christopher J.; Kennedy, Cathleen A. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2016
Evaluators must employ research designs that generate compelling evidence related to the worth or value of programs, of which assessment data often play a critical role. This article focuses on assessment design in the context of evaluation. It describes the process of using the Framework for K-12 Science Education and Next Generation Science…

Sang, Guoyuan; Valcke, Martin; van Braak, Johan; Zhu, Chang; Tondeur, Jo; Yu, Kailian – Asia-Pacific Journal of Teacher Education, 2012
The present study aims to challenge primary school science teachers' beliefs about education and teaching efficacy, as well as their teaching practices, through a video-case-based intervention programme in a Chinese educational setting. A total of 46 in-service teachers were involved in this study (experimental group = 23, control group = 23).…

Gropen, Jess; Kook, Janna F.; Hoisington, Cindy; Clark-Chiarelli, Nancy – Early Education and Development, 2017
Young children are able to benefit from early science teaching but many preschool teachers have not had opportunities to deepen their own understanding of science or to develop their pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) in relation to specific science topics and concepts. This study presents the results of efficacy research on Foundations of…

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…

Palmer, David – Science Education, 2011
Low teacher self-efficacy is an important factor constraining the teaching of science at the elementary level. This study was designed to investigate the effectiveness of particular sources of efficacy information for enhancing the science teaching self-efficacy of practicing elementary teachers. Twelve teachers participated in an intervention…

Velayutham, Sunitadevi; Aldridge, Jill M.; Fraser, Barry – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of students' motivational beliefs (learning goal orientation, task value and self-efficacy) in science learning on students' self-regulation in the science classroom. The study also examines the moderating effect of gender on the proposed relationships. Data were collected from 719 boys…

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…
