Large gender differences in physics self-efficacy at equal performance levels: A warning sign?
written by Z. Yasemin Kalender, Emily Marshman, Christian D. Schunn, Timothy J. Nokes-Malach, and Chandralekha Singh
Self-efficacy, or the belief in one's capability to succeed in a particular task, course, or subject area, has been shown to influence students' learning outcomes and career decisions. Previous studies have shown that female students have lower self-efficacy than males in physics courses. However, few studies have focused on gender differences in self-efficacy at equal performance levels, which also vary by gender. We examined the self-efficacy by gender at matched achievement levels in introductory physics courses and found large self-efficacy differences. Implications of the self-efficacy differences for similarly performing males and females are discussed.
