LEAL, Mara de Souza; MELO-SILVA, Lucy Leal  e  TEIXEIRA, Maria Odília. Beliefs when coping with career development tasks with highschool students. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.1, pp. 125-132. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study is based on the Social Cognitive Theory and analyses the confidence with which highschool students, from the regular and technical schools cope with career development tasks. The variables analysed were sex, school type and family social-economic level. The participants (N=241) were students aged 17.5 years of age on average male and female, coming from different socialecomonic levels. They answered the Brazilian version of the Career Development Self-Efficacy Inventory (CD-SEI-Br). The results showed satisfactory precision indices, with amplitude varying between .65 and .75. The effect of gender and type of school is not statistically significant. However, the family socioeconomic level had a significant affect in that students from higher levels express more confidence when planning their career, preparing to find a job and actual finding a job. The psychometric properties of the CD-SEI are discussed, and the need for interventions to be addressed to strengthen the beliefs of students
