PRISM Phase II: Linking Culture, Self-Efficacy Beliefs and Change Processes to Student Learning and Achievement


This presentation describes the design and implementation of Georgia PRISM II research studies designed to link student success (undergraduate student achievement in introductory science and math courses) at 8 IHEs, over three years, with new measures of faculty perceptions of receptivity to change, self-efficacy beliefs and departmental culture. The development and initial validation results with these three new web-based measures will be described. Basic research questions and more specific research hypotheses framing the research are detailed. Implications of the predicted findings for understanding personal and organizational variables in future MSP studies in higher education contexts are discussed. How findings from this particular research study will be understood using the results of other PRISM II studies IHE contexts will be explained.
