Louis, Rachel A.; Mistele, Jean M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
Typically, mathematics and science are seen as linked together, where both subjects involve numbers, critical thinking, and problem solving. Our study aims to develop a better understanding of the connections between student's achievement scores in mathematics and science, student gender, and self-efficacy. We used the Trends in International…

Peterman, Karen; Withy, Kelley; Boulay, Rachel – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
A common challenge in the evaluation of K-12 science education is identifying valid scales that are an appropriate fit for both a student's age and the educational outcomes of interest. Though many new scales have been validated in recent years, there is much to learn about the appropriate educational contexts and audiences for these measures.…
