Abstract Title: STEP UP: Time Series Structure of High School Students’ Physics Identity Development Using Structural Equation Modeling.
Abstract: As part of the STEP UP project, we developed two lessons for high school physics teachers to encourage women to pursue physics degrees in college. At pre and post for each of these lessons, students completed an identical attitudinal survey developed to probe their physics identity including sub-constructs (recognition, interest, performance/competence, and utility) and future physics intentions. In this poster, we will present a time series model of identity development to understand the longitudinal development of students' physics identity sub-constructs and future intentions. We use a Multi-group Structural Equation modeling approach to compare the model between different gender and race/ethnic groups.
