Lin, Tzung-Jin; Tsai, Chin-Chung – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2013
In the past, students' science learning self-efficacy (SLSE) was usually measured by questionnaires that consisted of only a single scale, which might be insufficient to fully understand their SLSE. In this study, a multi-dimensional instrument, the SLSE instrument, was developed and validated to assess students' SLSE based on the previous…
