Lent, Robert W.; Sheu, Hung-Bin; Brown, Steven D. – Journal of Counseling Psychology, 2010
Armstrong and Vogel (2009) proposed that the differences between self-efficacy and interests are a matter of measurement artifact rather than substance. In tests of this hypothesis, they conceived of self-efficacy and interest as observed indicators of larger RIASEC (Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional) types…

Schneider, Barry H.; Woodburn, Sharon; del Pilar Soteras del Toro, Maria; Udvari, Stephen J. – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2005

Pajares, Frank; Valiante, Gio – 1996
According to self-efficacy theorists, people's judgments of what they can accomplish are influential arbiters in human agency and, as such, powerful determinants of their behavior. In large part, this is because these self-efficacy beliefs are said to act as mediators between other acknowledged influences on behavior, such as skill, ability,…

Staddon, J. E. R. – Psychological Review, 1984
The author addresses and critiques the recent controversy between Bandura (1983) and Phillips and Orton (1983) over Bandura's recent article on modes of causation in social learning. The proper role of formal models in the analysis of social dynamics is also discussed. (Author/EGS)

Bandura, Albert – Psychological Review, 1984
Responds to Staddon's critique of the author's earlier article and addresses issues raised by Staddon's (1984) alternative models of causality. The author argues that it is not the formalizability of causal processes that is the issue but whether cognitive determinants of behavior are reducible to past stimulus inputs in causal structures.…

Marfo, Kofi; Dinero, Thomas E. – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 1991
This paper argues that efficacy of early intervention must be assessed in relation to both program and extra-program variables.

The second model involved relationships among selected individual variables and suggests that learning disability is…

Wolfle, Lee M. – 1981
Hierarchial causal models are described as pictorial representations of multiple regression equations. These models are particularly helpful for three reasons: (1) the formulation of problems in a path analytic framework forces a degree of explicitness that is often not present in research reports that rely solely on regression; (2) they provide a…
