This study examined the relationship between mathematics achievement and mathematics problem-solving efficacy sources. A cluster sample of 123 first year prospective teachers of a public higher education institution responded to a 30-item problem-solving efficacy scales and took the teacher-made tests in Mathematics in the Modern World course; namely, Non-Routine Problem Solving and Natures and Numbers Pattern Tracing (NRPS-NNPT), Math Language and Symbols (MLS), and Data Management (DM). The research data was analyzed using Descriptive statistics, Pearson-r and Standard Multiple Regression. On the average, the respondents had satisfactory mathematics achievement. They reported a high level of social persuasion and somatic response and a low level of vicarious experience and mastery experience in mathematics problem-solving. Vicarious experience was positively associated with mastery experience while social persuasions and mastery were both negative related to somatic responses. Among the four problem-solving efficacy sources, only social persuasion significantly predicted mathematics achievement specifically in the areas of NRPS-NNPT, MLS, and DM. Thus, becoming a trusted voice of encouragement and designing a persuasive and optimistic learning environment are highly recommended roles of schools to facilitate students’ mathematics achievement.

The capacity of self-efficacy to promote students' better performance in mathematics highlights the importance of measuring and ensuring mathematics problem-solving efficacy among students. Despite a number of existing questionnaires on problem-solving efficacy, however, a valid and reliable scale that is customized in the context of Filipino students enrolled in mathematics classes is yet to be developed and validated. Hence, this research is an attempt to facilitate the academic achievement of...

Studies in the past two decades revealed the poor performance of students in Mathematics. In this study, the status of implementation of Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) Mathematics Curriculum in One State University in the Philippines was analyzed using the descriptive evaluative research design. Five Mathematics professors were interviewed together with 42 BSEd Mathematics Major students. Document analysis was done on the submitted syllabi of the professors and the modes of assessment th...

The relations between self-efficacy and mathematics achievement were examined in this study. The research was carried out with 350 (51% male and 49% female) 7th grade students who are in different schools in the centre of Konya. Sources of mathematics self-efficacy scale was used to determine the self-efficacy sources of students and end-of-term mathematics grades were used to determine their mathematics achievement. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient and Multiple Linear Regression A...
This study examined (a) the correlation of the four hypothesized sources of self-efficacy (mastery experience, vicarious experience, social persuasion, emotional arousal) with academic performance, and (b) the prediction of the main source of self-efficacy that affects academic performance. A 40-item survey measuring sources of mathematics self-efficacy was administered to 178 third-year engineering students. Academic performance, which includes mathematics module grades and cumulative grade poi...
For nearly 50 years, leaders in American industry, military, education, and politics have focused considerable attention on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education. Given the increased societal demand for STEM careers, the relationships among classroom climate, self-efficacy, and achievement in undergraduate mathematics needed to be examined. A purposeful sample of college algebra instructors (n = 15), employed at public 4-year universities in various states (n = 10) a...
The study aimed to determine the performance of the students in the area of Mathematics particularly in Algebra and Trigonometry. The researchers used a retrospective study where documentary analysis in gathering the data was more appropriate. The data were gathered from the departmental examination given in Algebra and Trigonometry for the academic year 2011- 2013. The respondents of the study were the students who took both the two subjects. The results revealed that the students who took the ...

The purpose of this study was to assess the influence of Bandura's (1997) theorized sources of self-efficacy on the academic and self-regulatory efficacy beliefs of 3rd-grade elementary school students (N = 395) in France, to examine whether classroom context might explain a significant portion of the variation in self-efficacy, and to assess whether these sources differ as a function of sex. Hierarchical linear modeling revealed that mastery experience, social persuasions, and mean classroom-le...

This article describes and demonstrates a two-step approach for transforming non-normally distributed continuous variables to become normally distributed. Step 1 involves transforming the variable into a percentile rank, which will result in uniformly distributed probabilities. Step 2 applies the inverse-normal transformation to the results of the first step to form a variable consisting of normally distributed z-scores. The approach is little-known outside the statistics literature, has been sc...
