Gender Differences in Self-Efficacy among Latino College Freshmen
Lopez, J. Derek
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v36 n1 p95-104 Feb 2014
This study examines the changes in self-efficacy among Latinos during the freshman year in a highly selective institution. Results indicate that gender differences exist during this period. Males rate themselves high in self-efficacy at the beginning of the year, while females rate themselves low. An interaction effect occurs at the end of the year, and the ratings of self-efficacy are similar for both males and females. Possible explanations for the interaction effect are discussed.
