Background Characteristics as Predictors of Academic Self-Confidence and Academic Self-Efficacy among Graduate Science and Engineering Students.
Santiago, Anna M.; Einarson, Marne K.
Research in Higher Education, v39 n2 p163-98 Apr 1998
A study of science and engineering graduate students found that at time of entry, women and U.S. minority graduate students had academic credentials and expectations similar to those of their Anglo male peers. Student perceptions of academic preparedness, status-related disadvantages, and expectations about student-faculty interactions were more significant predictors than was gender for academic self-efficacy and career-related outcomes expectations.
