Self-efficacy and task orientation in first-year engineering design courses

Abstract

Many engineering programs are implementing hands-on engineering experiences early in the curriculum, typically in the form of a project-based course in which students design and build a prototype as a team. However, research on these courses suggests that task orientation is correlated with gender, as are the increases in self-efficacy observed. As… (More)
