How is perception of being recognized by others as someone good at physics related to female and male students’ physics identities?
written by Timothy J. Nokes-Malach, Z. Yasemin Kalender, Emily Marshman, Christian D. Schunn, and Chandralekha Singh
Prior research on underrepresentation of women in physics has focused on gender differences in various attitudes and beliefs students have with regards to physics. One open area of investigation pertains to the foundations of students' identities in physics, which can be a particularly powerful driver of career decisions. We present an investigation involving approximately 500 students in introductory level calculus-based physics courses, a context in which less than one third of the students are women. Students completed a motivation survey at the end of their first semester's physics course. We used Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) to test a modified physics identity framework, specifically examining whether the relation between gender and physics identity was mediated by motivational factors such as self-efficacy, interest, and perceived recognition. The results showed that students perceived recognition was a particularly important factor influencing self-efficacy and interest, which in turn mediated the relation between gender and physics identity.
