Knezek, Gerald; Christensen, Rhonda; Tyler-Wood, Tandra; Gibson, David – Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, 2015
Data gathered from 325 middle school students in four U.S. states indicate that both male (p < 0.0005, RSQ = 0.33) and female (p < 0.0005, RSQ = 0.36) career aspirations for "being a scientist" are predictable based on knowledge of dispositions toward mathematics, science and engineering, plus self-reported creative tendencies. For…
