Eva Knekta

I have a major in biology, a degree of master in education, and a Ph.D. in educational measurements. My research interest concerns motivational aspects within education. My Ph.D. studies mainly focused on how to validly conceptualize and measure test-taking motivation and how test-taking motivation might affect the validity of the interpretations made from the achievement tests. Currently, I am involved in research projects investigating how primary literature can be used to increase students engagement in an department and the role of interest and career goals on students' persistence in STEM career pathways.
