Comments:

Administer LAESE to engineering students at the beginning of each academic year to collect longitudinal data that can be compared from one year to the next; high school students at the beginning of the school year or annually for participants in outreach programs or activities. The first administration will provide you with baseline data for that set of students or student cohort. You can then track that cohort throughout their enrollment in the curriculum or program to track changes in respondent self-efficacy.
