Role of Self-Efficacy and Task-Value in Predicting College Students' Course Performance and Future Enrollment Intentions.
Bong, Mimi
This study compared the predictive utility of self-efficacy and task-value beliefs among Korean female college students (N=168). It assessed constructs longitudinally and attempted consolidation of self-efficacy and expectancy-value theories. Self-efficacy perceptions were assessed at varying levels of measurement specificity. Exploratory factor analyses showed self-efficacy items were reliably differentiated into separate factors of a priori specificity. Task-value items were separated into utility and intrinsic value factors. Various self-efficacy factors, except for problem-specific self-efficacy, were positively correlated among themselves and with task-value factors. Path analyses showed that students' midterm scores and enrollment intentions at T1 were better predicted by task-value factors. However, the typically stronger links of self-efficacy to performance and of task-value to intentions were observed with T2 measures. Utility and interest values displayed slightly different relations with other variables, demonstrating the need to distinguish between multiple value components.
