Edwards-Joseph, Arline; Baker, Stanley
Journal of International Students, v4 n1 p48-59 2014
This study investigated factors that influenced the academic self-efficacy of Caribbean overseas students attending universities in the United States, and the themes that emerged from their perceptions of variables impacting their academic self-efficacy. Seven major themes (educational background, faith in God, finances, age and maturity, influence and support of others, self-determination, and previous success of other and of self) emerged as factors that influenced the students' academic self-efficacy. Recommendations for counselors and areas for future research are discussed.
