Sources of Mathematics Self-Efficacy in High School Students.
Lopez, Frederick G.; Lent, Robert W.
Career Development Quarterly, v41 n1 p3-12 Sep 1992
Explored relationship of four sources of self-efficacy information to high school students' (n=50) mathematics self-efficacy. Found prior performance to be most efficient predictor of self-efficacy. Global academic self-concept did not explain unique self-efficacy variation beyond prior performance. Effect of self-efficacy on perceived utility of mathematics to future plans was mediated by students' mathematics/science interests. (Author/NB)
