However, perceived science competence and future self as a scientist are positively correlated for each gender overall and at each grade level 5th through 8th. The twenty reports that are reviewed by all, are unknown to everyone, therefore all participants are blind to the reports that will be compared. The discipline in this environment is very structured; so, this is also be a means of temporing that rigidity while developing their internal desire to succeed.
