Toland, Michael D.; Usher, Ellen L. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2016

The present study tested whether a reduced number of categories is optimal for assessing mathematics self-efficacy among middle school students using a 6-point Likert-type format or a 0- to 100-point format. Two independent samples of middle school adolescents (N = 1,913) were administered a 24-item Middle School Mathematics Self-Efficacy Scale…

Alkharusi, Hussain; Aldhafri, Said; Al-Hosni, Khoula; Al-Busaidi, Saleh; Al-Kharusi, Bader; Ambusaidi, Abdullah; Alrajhi, Marwa – International Journal of Instruction, 2017

A scale for measuring self-efficacy for teaching mathematics in grades 5 to 10 was developed in this study for teachers in Oman. The participants were 328 mathematics teachers randomly selected from five educational governorates in the Sultanate of Oman. Factorial structure of the scale revealed three subscales: self-efficacy for understanding the…

Briggs, Calvin – ProQuest LLC, 2014

The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship existed between mathematics self-efficacy and mathematics identity to mathematics achievement among African American males from High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09). Subsequently, the extent to which mathematics self-efficacy and mathematics identity accounted for low and…

King, Jeriann Cline – ProQuest LLC, 2014

Educators face decisions when incorporating an expanding array of technological resources in mathematics education and interventions. Guided by Bandura's theory of self-efficacy, which holds that self-efficacy augments personal accomplishments, this quantitative study explored the relationship of Web 2.0 technology use and the development of…

Ahn, Hyun Seon; Usher, Ellen L.; Butz, Amanda; Bong, Mimi – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016

Background: The potential role of culture in the development and operation of self-efficacy has been acknowledged by researchers. Clearer understanding of this cultural impact will benefit from research that shows how the same efficacy information is evaluated across cultures. Aims: We tested whether two sources of self-efficacy information…

Shanley, Lina – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015

Preparing every student to be college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school has become a national policy priority. Although a variety of academic skills are required for postsecondary success, mathematics achievement is a particularly influential factor in college and career readiness (Pellegrino & Hilton, 2012). Research…

Aksu, Zeki; Ozkaya, Merve; Gedik, Solmaz Damla; Konyalioglu, Alper Cihan – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2016

This study aims to analyze the relationship between secondary school seventh grade students' perception of mathematical self-efficacy, mistake-handling learning awareness, and mathematical anxiety; and to define the power of mistake-handling learning and self-efficacy in predicting mathematical anxiety. In this study, relational model was used and…

Freed, Mark R. – ProQuest LLC, 2013

There were three primary purposes for this study. First, I investigated the psychometric properties of the Sources of Middle School Mathematics Self-Efficacy (SMMSE) scale (Usher, 2007; Usher & Pajares, 2009) with high school students. Validation for expanded use of the SMMSE scale was achieved by assessing the instrument's psychometric…

Fryer, Luke K.; Oga-Baldwin, W. L. Quint – Frontline Learning Research, 2017

Self-efficacy is an essential source of motivation for learning. While considerable research has theorised and examined the how and why of self-efficacy in a single domain of study, longitudinal research has not yet tested how self-efficacy might generalise or transfer between subjects such as mathematics, native and foreign language studies. The…

Martin, Andrew J.; Way, Jennifer; Bobis, Janette; Anderson, Judy – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2015

This study of 1,601 students in the middle years of schooling (Grades 5-8, each student measured twice, 1 year apart) from 200 classrooms in 44 schools sought to identify factors explaining gains and declines in mathematics engagement at key transition points. In multilevel regression modeling, findings showed that compared with Grade 6 students…
