Albert Bandura:A Study of the Correlation Between One’s self-efficacy and Performance in math

Andree Ory


Background l.jpg

Background

*Born 1925, Alberta Canada

*Majored in psychology at University of Iowa

*Currently a Professor at Stanford University

*President of American Psychological Association 1974


Background3 l.jpg

*As Undergrad worked with Robert Sears Social Learning Theory

*1960’s Studied Cognitive Processes

*1970’s Studied Imitation and Modeling Behavior

*1980’s Developed Self-Efficacy Theory

Background


Slide4 l.jpg

Key Terms

*Percieved Self-efficacy- people’s beliefs about their capabilities to produce effects.

*Instructional Efficacy-teachers’ beliefs in their own abilities as a teacher to handle the classroom and influence their students’performances.

*Cognitive Processes-Thinking processes involved in the acquisition, organization,

and use of information.


Sources of self efficacy l.jpg

Sources of self-Efficacy


Results of early studies l.jpg

Results of Early Studies

*1987, Schunk “taught children with severe academic problems how to diagnose cognitive task demands, construct solutions, monitor their adequacy, and make corrective changes when they erred.”

*Bandura found that endurance and sustained effort=success and aiming for higher goals.


More results of early studies l.jpg

More Results of Early Studies

*Dowrick and Schunk (1983), Hanson (1989) test with vicarious experience and video-tapes.

*Bandura: “For most activities, however, there are no absolute measures of adequacy. Therefore, people must appraise their capabilities in relation to the attainments of others.”


Early results continued l.jpg

Early Results Continued

*Bandura: “People often read their physiological activation in stressful or taxing situations as signs of vulnerability to dysfunction.

Ex: Palms Sweating Before a Piano Recital


Collins research l.jpg

Collins’ Research

*Collins first evaluated the self-efficacy levels of the children by asking them if they were good in math.

*Next, he gave them problems to work out with the easiest ones going to students with low self-efficacy levels giving the harder problems to those who supposed themselves to be “mathematically efficacious.”


Collins research results l.jpg

Collins’ Research Results

*The children who thought of themselves as good produced better results not just on natural ability but by the effort they put forth.

* The children with high self-efficacy appraisals (evaluations) were more motivated to do well; thus, they worked harder to find new strategies for the problems they did not understand.


Collins conclusion as basis for research study l.jpg

Collins’ Conclusion As Basis For Research Study

* Thus, as Collins proved, a child’s attitude does directly correlate with his performance academically, as proven in the above example with math.


Statement of the problem l.jpg

Statement of the Problem

*Many students do not achieve their highest potential academically because of a perceived low self-efficacy and that some teachers do not know how to positively impact their students’ confidence in their own abilities.


Objective l.jpg

Objective

*By finding out which source of self-efficacy is the most effective and how teachers can motivate their students to believe in themselves, the students can benefit academically and humanly as happier, self-empowered individuals.


Hypothesis l.jpg

Hypothesis

*Students with a higher perceived self-efficacy will score better on the first math problem test than the students with a lower perceived self-efficacy on the vicarious experience test.

*Students who were encouraged verbally after the first test will choose a higher level of difficulty on the second test.


Hypothesis16 l.jpg

Hypothesis

*Students who were motivated by a model to follow after the first test will improve their scores on the second test.

*Enactive mastery experience will have the greatest impact on the students’ perceived self-efficacy.


Setting of research l.jpg

Setting of Research

*Setting: St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, Laplace, LA in Mrs. Daigre’s 4th grade Classroom with 12 4th graders (2 boys and 10 girls).


Procedure l.jpg

PRocedure

*After obtaining written permission from the parents, I gave 12 of the students a survey with the following questions on it to assess their perceived self-efficacy in math asking questions like:

*Do you like Math?

*Do you enjoy memorizing Multiplication Tables?

*What is something that you learned in Math this year?

*Do you think you are very good at Math, okay at math, or not very good at Math?


Group 1 enactive mastery experience l.jpg

Group 1: Enactive Mastery Experience

*I asked the child if he/she would like the easy, medium, or hard multiplication problems and have them work on one.

*I gave him/her one minute to solve the problems on the worksheet and then scored the worksheet, showing the score to the child and asking them which level test he/she wanted if he had a second chance to work on it.


Group 2 verbal persuasion l.jpg

Group 2:Verbal Persuasion

*I asked the child to choose which level worksheet he wanted. Depending on what he chose, I encouraged him to pick a worksheet that is the next level up in difficulty, recording his score.

*I gave him 1 min. to finish the worksheet and then gave him a choice of a second worksheet to work on, recording his score.


Group 3 vicarious experience l.jpg

Group 3: Vicarious Experience

*I showed him an example of a medium level multiplication worksheet that a child from the first group took, scoring a 100.

*Then, gave each child a choice of which worksheet to work on next and recorded his score.

*1st Hypothesis-True

*3rd-True

*4th-False

*See Bandura Hand-Out


Implications for educators l.jpg

Implications for Educators

*Educators must understand that self-efficacy does influence academic performance and that in some, not all cases, verbal persuasion helps the students.

*As with the results of each of the groups’ study, these three sources of self-efficacy do not always predict a high performance or a higher goal that the students chose.
