Dr. Josh Emmett, assistant professor of education at PLNU’s Bakersfield Regional Center, presented the findings of a research study at the biennial conference of the International Community for Christian Teacher Education in May. His presentation was entitled “The Roots of Low Self-Efficacy for Math in Middle School Students.” The research was conducted as part of a yearlong effort, in collaboration with Dan Hall, former PLNU assistant professor of education, to provide daily math instruction during the 2011-12 school year for a class of 7th grade students. The goal was to support their development in learning math while studying the causes of low self-efficacy for math. Dr. Corey McKenna, PLNU professor of education, also contributed to the research study.
