What is the correlation between CLA and CLSE and how does this compare to the known correlation between CLA and general chemistry self-efficacy?
Are the student characteristics of first language, prior and expected aversiveness, and desired and expected grade, correlated with CLA or CLSE?
Information about how their CLA and CLSE change with time will provide educators with important information to help them time the implementation of interventions well.
Additionally, questions were added that asked students about their CLSE with respect to each of the eight aspects of the laboratory work that were expected to contribute to CLA.
Negative prior experiences have also been seen to have a negative impact on students in the affective domain and on their CLSE (DeKorver & Towns, 2015).
The expected inverse correlation between CLA and CLSE (of which no reported measures exist) was clearly visible in this data.
What changes occur in students' CLA and CLSE from the beginning to the end of their first semester?
This supported the hypothesis that other mastery experiences and familiarity with the tertiary learning environment would improve students' CLSE and lower their CLA.
The CLASEQ is expected to prove useful in such a situation as a tool for educators to use in order to evaluate the impact of any such interventions on both CLA and CLSE at once.
These perspectives constitute a social and cultural foundations approach to the study of education; one that "assesses the logical connections between the educational goals we select and the means we employ to achieve them" (CLSE, 1996, p.
