Sarabi, M. K.; Gafoor, K. Abdul – Online Submission, 2017
There is increasing realization that mathematics-related self-efficacy expectations are a strong predictor of an array of significant mathematics outcomes. It is also evident that the curricular practice in schools largely neglects development of a student understanding in the unique language of mathematics. Consequently, this study probes how…

Enoma, Agbon; Malone, John – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
The relationship between the self-efficacy of 23 High School students with intellectual disability (ID) and their achievements in Mathematics was evaluated using a modified version of the self-efficacy instrument developed by Joet, Bressoux and Usher (2011). Four different number sense assessment tools were administered pre- and post-six months of…

Ölmez, Ibrahim Burak; Cohen, Allan S. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
The purpose of this study was to investigate a new methodology for detection of differences in middle grades students' math anxiety. A mixture partial credit model analysis revealed two distinct latent classes based on homogeneities in response patterns within each latent class. Students in Class 1 had less anxiety about apprehension of math…

Schulz, Wolfram H. – Online Submission, 2005
Student performance is generally viewed as the main criterion variable when analysing equity in the outcomes of education. However, there is evidence that even with increasing equity in achievement, inequity in other important learning outcomes might still prevail. Students' judgements of their own ability to solve tasks in Mathematics or…

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…

DeChenne, Sue Ellen; Enochs, Larry – Online Submission, 2010
An instrument to measure the teaching self-efficacy of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) GTAs is adapted from a general college teaching instrument (Prieto Navarro, 2005) for the specific teaching environment of the STEM GTAs. The construct and content validity and reliability of the final instrument are indicated. The final…

Spencer, Peta – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2013
The concept of mobile technologies is now an emergency theme in educational research, yet the playing of these edutainment applications and their impact on early childhood learning needs to be fully explored. This study highlights current research and explores how iPads improve student learning. It also examines how the introduction of iPads,…

Langenfeld, Thomas E.; Pajares, Frank – 1993
A factor analysis study provided empirical evidence of the validity of the modified Mathematics Self-Efficacy Scale (MSES) and its three subscales: mathematics problems self-efficacy, mathematics tasks self-efficacy, and college courses self-efficacy. The MSES was administered to 522 undergraduate students from three state universities and…

Hackett, Gail – 1981
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that mathematics-related self-efficacy mediates the effects of gender and mathematical preparation and achievement on mathematics-relatedness of college major. The responses of 117 undergraduates to a series of inventories and questionnaires yielded seven variables descriptive of the…

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…

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…

Merenluoto, Kaarina – International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2004
This pilot study determined some typical cognitive-motivational profiles of Finnish lower secondary students dealing with fractions and decimal numbers. Forty seven students from grades 7-9 participated in a number concept test, where also the motivational aspects, such as self-efficacy, certainty and tolerance were measured. Four distinctively…
