Abstract Title: Creating a Dictionary of Task Responses from an ESM survey
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: This poster will present a portion of a mixed methods research study designed to investigate how students' self-efficacy (SE), or one's confidence in their abilities to complete a task, varies from moment to moment. Our quantitative methods utilized the Experience Sampling Method (ESM), which pings participants semi-randomly several times a day to answer surveys. The survey items were designed to measure the in-the-moment, domain-specific SE of undergraduate science majors. To identify the task the participant is doing at that moment, one of the open-ended survey questions asked students "What is the main thing you are doing?" The data from this question are being used to generate a dictionary of responses which will then be used to categorize tasks. This categorization will be used to create a new survey item including a dropdown list of responses which will be utilized in future studies.
