Students' and Teachers' Efficacy in Use of Learning Strategies and Achievement in Mathematics
Marat, Deepa
Issues in Educational Research, v17 n2 p207-231 2007
In the context of the critical role of self-efficacy in educational achievement, this present research examined students' and teachers' efficacy in use of learning strategies in mathematics, and the relationship with achievement. The second phase of a multi-method doctoral study, ninety-two students and ten teachers from a diverse secondary school were surveyed on efficacy in use of learning strategies, and the factors they perceived as facilitating or inhibiting the use of learning strategies in the classroom context. The findings are contextualised within a multi-method framework comprising two research projects. The cumulative findings bring to light illusory-efficacy in a sizeable number of student participants who did not achieve, highlighting the importance of true efficacy and learning strategies to reduce disparities and enhance achievement.
