Gender and Perceived Self-Efficacy in Self-Regulated Learning.
Pajares, Frank
Theory into Practice, v41 n2 p116-25 Spr 2002
Examines the relationship between gender, self-efficacy, and self-regulated learning, explaining that students' self- efficacy beliefs influence their academic performance in many ways. Although social cognitive theory does not endow gender with motivating properties, research suggests that students view certain educational domains as male and certain others as female, and gender differences in students' academic self-efficacy and self-efficacy to employ self-regulatory strategies are often reported.
