Influence of Social Cognitive and Gender Variables on Technological Academic Interest among Spanish High-School Students: Testing Social Cognitive Career Theory
Rodríguez, Carmen; Inda, Mercedes; Fernández, Carmen Mª
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v16 n3 p305-325 Oct 2016
This study tested social cognitive career theory (SCCT) in the technological domain with 2,359 high-school students in Asturias (Spain). Path analyses were run to determine the influence of gender on the SCCT model and to explain the influence of personal (emotional state, gender-role attitudes), contextual (perceived social supports and barriers), and cognitive (self-efficacy beliefs, outcome expectations) variables on technological interest. The results almost entirely confirm the SCCT model for Spanish high-school students in both the boys' and girls' samples. Further, the results show that girls and boys do not differ significantly as far as the different variables are concerned.
