Second Order Model of Self-Efficacy Measures.
Kennedy, Helen L.
Assumptions underlying the multifaceted, hierarchical structure of self-efficacy previously hypothesized by R. Shavelson, J. Hubner, and G. Stanton (1976) for the construct of self-concept were tested. The self-efficacy interpretation of the Science Self-Efficacy Scale (H. Kennedy, 1996), a relatively new measure, was studied with 331 (151 female and 180 male) college students and multiple measures of science, mathematics, and self-regulated learning self-efficacy facets. Results support a multifaceted, hierarchical interpretation. A second-order self-efficacy latent named academic self-efficacy was shown to be reflected by the three first-order self-efficacy factors of science, mathematics, and self-regulated learning.
