Previous research suggests that differences in confidence...
The goal of this research was to identify the individual difference traits and STEM-related experiences that predict pursuit of academic training in STEM. The study, funded through an ADVANCE mini-grant, titled Predictors of Majoring in Science and Engineering (Beier, M. E., PI), is a longitudinal two-year study spanning from Fall, 2007 through Spring 2009.
