Betz, Nancy E.; Hackett, Gail – Journal of Vocational Behavior, 1983

Investigated the relationship of mathematics self-efficacy expectations to the selection of science-based major in 261 college students. Results indicated that mathematics self-efficacy expectations were significantly related to students' selection of science-based college majors. The math-related self-efficacy expectations of males were…

Hackett, Gail; Betz, Nancy E. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 1989

This study investigated the relationship between mathematical performance and mathematics self-efficacy, attitudes toward mathematics, and the choice of mathematics-related majors by college women and men. Performance and self-efficacy correlate positively with attitudes, masculine sex-role orientation, and a mathematics-related major. (Author/DC)

Betz, Nancy E.; Hackett, Gail – Journal of Career Assessment, 1997

Summarizes Bandura's self-efficacy theory. Reviews occupational, scientific-technical, and mathematics self-efficacy, Holland's hexagonal model, the Occupational Self-Efficacy Scale, and the relationship of self-efficacy to vocational interests. Considers the applicability of these concepts to women's career development and assessment. (SK)

Hackett, Gail; Betz, Nancy E. – 1982

The purposes of the present study were to develop and evaluate a measure of self-efficacy expectations with regard to the performance of mathematics-related behaviors and to investigate the relationship of mathematics self-efficacy expectations to the selection of science-based college majors. Based on results obtained from a pilot sample of 115…

Betz, Nancy E.; Gwilliam, Laurie R. – Journal of Career Assessment, 2001

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…

Paulsen, Alisa M.; Betz, Nancy E. – Career Development Quarterly, 2004

The extent to which Basic Confidence Scales predicted career decision-making self-efficacy was studied in a sample of 627 undergraduate students. Six confidence variables accounted for 49% of the variance in career decision-making self-efficacy. Leadership confidence was the most important, but confidence in science, mathematics, writing, using…

Hackett, Gail; Betz, Nancy E. – 1984

This investigation, part of an on-going research program examining social learning theory applications to career development, tested several hypotheses derived from A. Bandura's self-efficacy theory in the career-related domain of mathematics. Specifically, the effects of failure on a mathematics task and on a task irrelevant to mathematics were…
