Participate in an engineering self-efficacy survey for a chance to win a $20 gift card!

Posted by on Oct 20, 2020 in Opportunities, Students |

Are you an undergraduate or 4+1 engineering student at ASU? Are you at least 18 years of age? If you answered “yes” to these questions, you’re invited to participate in a research study. Participation is voluntary and involves completing a 15-minute Engineering Self-Efficacy Survey.

This research project is being conducted by Elizabeth Jones, a Barrett Honors student working on her Honors Thesis project with the guidance of Tirupalavanam Ganesh. She is interested in learning more about undergraduate and 4+1 engineering students’ self-efficacy (your belief in your capacity to earn an engineering degree), sense of belonging (belong as an engineer, be included in the engineering profession) and engineering engagement (via Fulton Difference activities).

In order to draw inferences that can be used to make recommendations to the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, Jones is hoping to collect data from 1,500 participants. Upon completion of the survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of fifty $20 gift-cards. Note: Only one entry per person.

Take the survey now!

 

In order to participate, you must be 18 years or older and acknowledge the consent form on the survey.
