Lent, Robert W.; And Others
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n4 p424-30 Oct 1991
Explored relation of sources of efficacy information to mathematics self-efficacy percepts and relations among self-efficacy, outcome expectations, interest in mathematics-related college courses, and choice of science-based career among 138 undergraduates. Efficacy informational sources were significantly predictive of gender differences in predicting interest and choice indexes; effects of self-efficacy on science-related career choice were mediated by interests.
