Knaggs, Christine M.; Sondergeld, Toni A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2015
Academic science achievement of U.S. students has raised concerns regarding our ability as a nation to compete in a global economy. Additionally, research has shown that many elementary teachers have weak science content backgrounds and had poor/negative experiences as students of science, resulting in a lack of confidence regarding teaching…

Moseley, Christine; Taylor, Bryan – School Science and Mathematics, 2011
The context and nature of teacher efficacy beliefs provide a method upon which to explore science teachers' perceptions of their teaching effectiveness and student achievement as a function of ethnicity. Promotion of a more in-depth knowledge of science teaching efficacy requires cross-sectional and longitudinal investigations. In this study, a…

Thomas, Julie A.; Strunk, Kamden K. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2017
This longitudinal study explored the ways parents' and teachers' expectancy for success influences 3rd-5th children's expectancy for success and achievement in science. Guided by an open-systems perspective and functional (Ballantine & Roberts, 2007) and expectancy-value (Eccles, 2005, 2007) theories, we focused on school related socialization…

Dede, Hulya; Yilmaz, Zeynel Abidin; Ilhan, Nail – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2017
One of the factors influencing teachers' and pre-service teachers' self-efficacy beliefs is the use of innovations and research in education (scientific articles, thesis, and new teaching materials). This study aims to examine to what extent pre-service science teachers follow the innovations in the field of education and use these innovations in…

Robertson Evia, Jane; Peterman, Karen; Cloyd, Emily; Besley, John – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2018
Self-efficacy, or the beliefs people hold about their ability to succeed in certain pursuits, is a long-established construct. Self-efficacy for science communication distinguishes scientists who engage with the public and relates to scientists' attitudes about the public. As such, self-efficacy for public engagement has the potential to serve as…
