Effects of Self-Regulatory Interventions on the Self-Efficacy of Community College Non-Science Majors.
Maurer, Matthew J.
This study examines how self-regulatory interventions affected the biology self-efficacy of a sample of non-science majors enrolled in a Midwestern community college. Portfolio assignments and a survey instrument were used to measure the self-efficacy of college non-majors for performing biology-related tasks. Results show that the vast majority of students are at nominal and functional levels of literacy whereas very few students are at the conceptual and application levels. It was also concluded that males had more significant changes in self-efficacy than did females. (KHR)
