Myers, Aaron J.; Finney, Sara J. – Journal of Experimental Education, 2021
Perceived test importance and test-taking effort are typically measured after test completion, contrary to the temporal ordering specified by expectancy-value theory. Retrospective importance and effort scores may reflect students' self-protective attributions of performance, which would support collection of prospective importance and effort…

Liebendörfer, Michael; Schukajlow, Stanislaw – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2020
Interest is a key motivational variable in higher mathematics education, yet there is a lack of theory-based interventions that are designed to increase interest. On the basis of the expectancy-value theory of achievement motivation, we investigated how reflecting on the utility value of mathematics affects interest. The current research was aimed…

Gaspard, Hanna; Dicke, Anna-Lena; Flunger, Barbara; Schreier, Brigitte; Häfner, Isabelle; Trautwein, Ulrich; Nagengast, Benjamin – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2015
Expectancy-value theory (Eccles et al., 1983) is a prominent approach to explaining gender differences in math-related academic choices, with value beliefs acting as an important explanatory factor. Expectancy-value theory defines 4 value components: intrinsic value, attainment value, utility value, and cost. The present study followed up on…

Graham, Kenneth W.; Achenreiner, Gwen; McDermott, Maggie; Crosby, Elizabeth – Marketing Education Review, 2020
Prior research on marketing curriculum design suggests that new course offerings are driven by inputs from faculty resources and interests, student demand and willingness to enroll in the course, and feedback from alumni and employers regarding the skills students need to be successful in the workplace. In the face of the rising costs of higher…

Kier, Meredith W.; Blanchard, Margaret R. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2021
This multiple case study elicited the voices of four 8th grade students, from a rural, low-income school district, who participated in STEM career explorations during their science class. Based on students' written reflections during career explorations, interviews, and from field notes, we analyzed the ways students talked about their lives and…

Akin, Ayça; Güzeller, Cem Oktay; Evcan, Sinem Sezer – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2016
The purpose of the current study is to develop a mathematics self-report inventory (MSRI) to measure Turkish elementary students' mathematics expectancy beliefs and task values based on the expectancy-value theory of achievement motivation. In Study-1 (n = 1,315), exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and reliability analysis are used to evaluate the…

Limeri, Lisa B.; Asif, Muhammad Zaka; Dolan, Erin L. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers (postgraduates) in the life sciences frequently mentor undergraduate researchers, especially at research universities. Yet there has been only modest investigation of this relationship from the postgraduate perspective. We conducted an exploratory study of the experiences of 32 postgraduate mentors…

King, Ronnel B.; Cai, Yuyang; Du, Hongfei – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021
Background: Expectancy-value theory posits that higher levels of utility-value yield better achievement outcomes. Much of the existing research on utility value has focused on the individual as the unit of analysis. Person-culture fit theory, however, suggests that it is also important to consider the fit between the person and the broader society…
