Phan, Huy P. – Journal of Educational Research, 2012
Empirical research has provided evidence supporting the validation and prediction of 4 major sources of self-efficacy: enactive performance accomplishments, vicarious experiences, verbal persuasion, and emotional states. Other research studies have also attested to the importance and potency of self-efficacy in academic learning and achievement.…

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…

Garvis, Susanne – British Journal of Music Education, 2013
In 2008, 201 beginning generalist teachers throughout Queensland, Australia, responded to a questionnaire intended to create a snapshot of current self-efficacy beliefs towards teaching music. Beginning teachers were asked to rank their perceived level of teacher self-efficacy for music, English and maths. Results were analysed through a series of…

Martin, Andrew J.; Anderson, Judy; Bobis, Janette; Way, Jennifer; Vellar, Rosemary – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2012
Prompted by international concerns about school and postschool participation in mathematics, the authors of the present study sought to investigate factors predicting "switching on" and "switching off" in mathematics, operationalized through measures of future intent and disengagement, respectively. They drew from…

Parker, Philip David; Marsh, Herbert W.; Ciarrochi, Joseph; Marshall, Sarah; Abduljabbar, Adel Salah – Educational Psychology, 2014
In this study, we tested the hypothesis that self-efficacy and self-concept reflect different underlying processes and both are critical to understanding long-term achievement outcomes. Although both types of self-belief are well established in educational psychology, research comparing and contrasting their relationship with achievement has been…

Nielsen, Ingrid L.; Moore, Kathleen A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2003
Studied descriptive measurement reliability and validity of scores from the newly developed Mathematics Self-Efficacy Scale (MSES) for class and test with a sample of 302 Australian high school students. Results provide some evidence for the psychometric properties of the MSES in both contexts, but there is evidence of failure to counterbalance…

Klinger, Christopher M. – Adults Learning Mathematics, 2011
Student primary teachers tend to have pervasive and frequently severe negative attitudes, low mathematics self-efficacy beliefs, and anxiety of mathematics that are more extreme than those of any other undergraduate student group. If unaddressed, such mathematics aversion will be carried into primary school classrooms, presenting a tangible and…

Creed, Peter A.; Conlon, Elizabeth G.; Dhaliwal, Kamal – Journal of Career Assessment, 2013
We used two studies to evaluate, modify, and provide initial validation for a revised Academic Hardiness scale. First, 16 experts rated scale items for content validity and identified two problematic questions. Second, confirmatory factor analyses with 300 Grade 10 students (46% boys, age range 14-17) identified a 17-item version to be the best…

Brown, Leni; O'Keeffe, Lisa – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
Numeracy Skills testing was brought to the forefront following the Action Now: Classroom Ready Teachers report in 2015. The announcement was met with much concern by many pre-service teachers (PSTs). Given the body of research associated with mathematics anxiety and assessment, which suggests that students' self-efficacy and confidence in their…

McConney, Andrew; Perry, Laura B. – Educational Research for Policy and Practice, 2010
Previous studies have shown that both student and school socioeconomic status (SES) are strongly associated with student outcomes, but less is known about how these relationships may vary for different students, schools and nations. In this study we use a large international dataset to examine how student SES, school SES and self-efficacy are…

Carmichael, Colin; Callingham, Rosemary; Hay, Ian; Watson, Jane – Australian Journal of Educational & Developmental Psychology, 2010
This paper examines the relationship between key predictors of middle school students' interest for statistical literacy, including their self-efficacy for statistical literacy and their prior mathematics achievement. Given the lack of research in the statistical literacy domain, a review of the mathematics education literature confirms the…

Garvis, Susanne; Pendergast, Donna – International Journal of Education & the Arts, 2011
The self-efficacy beliefs teachers hold about their ability to teach subjects shapes their competence in teaching. Teacher self-efficacy is defined as teacher beliefs in their ability to perform a teaching task. If teachers have strong teacher self-efficacy in the teaching of arts education, they are more likely to incorporate arts in the…

Wilson, T. M.; Macgillivray, H. L. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science & Technology, 2007
This study reports on basic, mostly pre-senior mathematical skills, as measured by a multiple choice questionnaire, of 566 students enrolled in a first year introductory data analysis subject within a science or broadly scientific degree programme. Most students had previously undertaken a senior high-school algebra and calculus based mathematics…

Woods-McConney, Amanda; Oliver, Mary Colette; McConney, Andrew; Schibeci, Renato; Maor, Dorit – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
Given international concerns about students' pursuit (or more correctly, non-pursuit) of courses and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, this study is about achieving a better understanding of factors related to high school students' engagement in science. The study builds on previous secondary analyses of Programme for…

Velayutham, Sunitadevi; Aldridge, Jill M.; Fraser, Barry – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2012
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of students' motivational beliefs (learning goal orientation, task value and self-efficacy) in science learning on students' self-regulation in the science classroom. The study also examines the moderating effect of gender on the proposed relationships. Data were collected from 719 boys…
