Measures of science and math self-efficacy and self-efficacy in scientific/technical fields (STF) were completed by 363 students (111 African Americans). Significant gender differences in favor of males were found in math and science self-efficacy, but there were no significant racial differences. Results suggest the STF self-efficacy measure may be inappropriate for use with unselected student samples. (Contains 50 references.) (SK)
