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…

Mongillo, Maria Boeke – Networks: An Online Journal for Teacher Research, 2016
Teacher self-efficacy is the belief a teacher holds that he or she can make a difference in student achievement, even when the student is difficult or unmotivated (Guskey & Passaro, 1994). It has been linked to positive teacher practices and student outcomes. This mixed methods study of preservice elementary and early childhood math teachers…

Buzza, Dawn C.; Dol, Melissa – Exceptionality Education International, 2015
Helping low-achieving students with learning disabilities and/or emotional-behavioural difficulties to develop the component skills for Self-Regulated Learning (SRL), such as setting and monitoring learning goals, is important for their success, both in and beyond school. This study examined the effects of a goal setting intervention on…

Wilder, S. – Education 3-13, 2017
Understanding why parents become involved in their children's education is crucial in strengthening the relationship between parental involvement and academic achievement. The present study focuses on the parental role construction and parental self-efficacy. The resulting trends suggest that parents, regardless of their self-efficacy, may assume…

Street, Karin Elisabeth Sørlie; Malmberg, Lars-Erik; Stylianides, Gabriel J. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Students' self-efficacy expectations (SEE) in mathematics are associated with their engagement and learning experiences. Going beyond previous operationalisations of SEE we propose a new instrument that takes into account not only "facet-specificity" (expectations related to particular competences or skills) and "strength"…

Villafañe, Sachel M.; Garcia, C. Alicia; Lewis, Jennifer E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2014
Chemistry self-efficacy has been defined as a student's beliefs about his or her own capability to perform a given chemistry task. These chemistry self-efficacy beliefs can be influenced by students' experiences in a course, and eventually, these beliefs could affect students' decisions to continue into STEM related-careers. In this study, we…

Middleton, James A. – Middle Grades Research Journal, 2013
The role of mathematical interest, identity, utility, self-efficacy, and effort was examined as a set of interdependent factors leading to students' mathematics achievement. A structural equations model, testing a hypothesized structure of motivation variables and their impact on middle school mathematics achievement was developed utilizing the…

Kele, Andriane; Sharma, Sashi – Teachers and Curriculum, 2014
Students' beliefs and attitudes can impact on their mathematics learning and performance. Yet, there appears to be minimal literature that deals with the educational implications of this dimension. This paper focuses on the beliefs of Year 12 Solomon Islands students in mathematics learning. The students' beliefs are analysed and themes…
