Palmer, David; Dixon, Jeanette; Archer, Jennifer – Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 2015
Many preservice primary teachers have low self-efficacy for science teaching. Although science methods courses have often been shown to enhance self-efficacy, science content courses have been relatively ineffective in this respect. This study investigated whether a tailored science content course would enhance self-efficacy. The participants were…

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…

Patterson, Jill Voorhees; Johnson, Ane Turner – Journal of Research in Education, 2017
Sustainability issues have led to increased demands for a STEM-literate society and workforce. Potential contributors need to be competent, have an understanding of earth and physical sciences, and be willing to pursue such fields. High school girls, however, remain underrepresented in physical science course enrollments (College Board, 2014).…
