The gap between self-efficacy and achievement

Harbaugh, A.G. (2005) The gap between self-efficacy and achievement. In: Washington State Community College Math Conference, 5 - 7 May 2005, Highline Community College, Ocean Shores, WA


Have you ever had students that consistently berate themselves because of their poor math ability when you know that they are doing well in your course? Or have you ever had students that insist they are more than capable of doing the assignments in your class in spite of the fact they fail every assignment? In this session, a model will be presented that associates student ability/achievement and perceived self efficacy. Research from related fields of motivation, epistemiology, affect and personality development will also be presented.
