Chen, Sufen; Huang, Chih-Chi; Chou, Te-Lien – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study explored the influence of experimental goal setting and planning on the attitudes toward science, self-efficacy, inquiry performance, and achievement of students with low academic performance. A total of 71 students aged 16-18 were randomly divided into a treatment group (with goal setting and planning) and a control group (without goal…

Avery, Leanne M.; Meyer, Daniel Z. – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
Science teaching in elementary schools, or the lack thereof, continues to be an area of concern and criticism. Preservice elementary teachers' lack of confidence in teaching science is a major part of this problem. In this mixed-methods study, we report the impacts of an inquiry-based science course on preservice elementary teachers' self-efficacy…

Liu, Chia-Ju; Jack, Brady Michael; Chiu, Houn-Lin – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2008
This paper presents the results of a case study involving 282 Taiwanese elementary science teachers at the elementary level. These teachers provided responses to the science efficacy instrument (STEBI-A) and also provided personal data regarding how their years of general (YTE) and science (YTS) teaching experience may have influenced student…

Köksal, Ela Ayse – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Science is comprised of theory and practical work and to study either part is not enough to understand the whole. Practical work such as observation and fieldtrips should be used to develop students' inquiry skills as well as to support the theory. Teachers with high self-efficacy on fieldtrips will be more likely to use this technique.…

Jungert, Tomas; Koestner, Richard – Educational Psychology, 2015
Research has shown that autonomy support has positive effects on academic development, but no study has examined how systemising cognitive orientation is related to important outcomes for science students, and how it may interact with autonomy support. This prospective investigation considered how systemising and support from teachers and parents…

Ekici, Fatma Taskin; Pekmezci, Sultan – Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, 2015
Effective and sustainable science education is enriched by the use of visuals, auditory, and tactile experiences. In order to provide effective learning, instruction needs to include multimodal approaches. Integrating ICT supported narrations into learning environments may provide effective and sustainable learning methods. Investigated in this…

Thomson, Margareta Maria; Nietfeld, John L. – Journal of Educational Research, 2016
In a mixed-methods study, the authors investigate teacher typologies of elementary teachers (N = 132) in the United States based on their reformed science teaching beliefs. Additionally, the identified teacher typologies were compared with respect to their science content knowledge, self-efficacy and epistemic beliefs. Results revealed three…

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…

Brigido, Maria; Borrachero, Ana Belen; Bermejo, Maria Luisa; Mellado, Vicente – European Journal of Teacher Education, 2013
The self-efficacy of prospective primary teachers was studied, considering in particular the relationship of that construct with the emotions they expect to experience as future science teachers, differentiating between when they will be teaching the content of the "nature sciences" (biology and geology) and that of the "hard…
