TEIXEIRA, Maria Odília  and  COSTA, Cátia João. Self-efficacy in higher education students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.2, pp. 143-155. ISSN 1984-7270.

With a socio-cognitive framework, we analyze sources of General Self-Efficacy, in demographic, academic, vocational and personality variables. The sample includes 480 students of the 2nd year of psychology, health, sports, scientific-research and technology courses who answered the Questionnaire Adjustment and Adaptation to Higher Education, Scales of Development and Well-being, Career Satisfaction, General Self-Efficacy, Requirement and Responsiveness Parental. In the multiple linear regression data are explanatory variables of Self-efficacy: average access to higher education, openness to experience (experiences), well-being, career satisfaction, neuroticism (emotional states), kindness, paternal requirement (persuasion, vicarious experience), and age and gender. Implications of data on educational interventions are discussed.

Keywords : Self-efficacy; sources of self-efficacy; learning.
