Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Kimberly Shaw
Self-efficacy   (SE) can be described as a person's belief in her/his   own ability to accomplish a specific task to a given   performance level, and is both content and context dependent. This   may be especially important for female students in science, who   tend to drop out of science classrooms with much better   performance records than their male counterparts. The PACER group at   SIUE has been developing an instrument to examine the relationship   between physics SE and student performance in our introductory physics   classrooms. Previously reported results suggesting no correlation between SE and   performance in our physics classrooms led to the development of   this new SE instrument. Development of the instrument, as well   as field data from this pilot instrument emphasizing self-efficacy in   physics (SEP) as it relates to gender, will be discussed
