Journal of Counseling Psychology, v44 n3 p307-15 Jul 1997
Examined whether global academic self-concept and academic self-efficacy beliefs that vary in domain specificity/globality represent distinct or common underlying dimensions. Results based on 205 university students revealed that each of the variables represented separate, though related, latent dimensions of self-perception. Implications for academic achievement are discussed. (RJM)
