oa The Journal of Independent Teaching and Learning - Self-efficacy and performance in mathematics at an African university
Mathematics self-efficacy is a person's assessment of how good he or she feels he or she is in dealing with the subject of mathematics. The purpose of this study was to examine a relationship between performance in mathematics and students' self-efficacy. The results showed a statistically significant correlation between mathematics efficacy and one's performance. The findings confirmed what other studies have previously reported. It was clear therefore that one's self-efficacy can boost performance in mathematics as well as in other subjects.
