Abstract/Description

Self-efficacy is a part of the cognitive process that influences behavior and outcomes. This cognitive process can be best understood through social cognitive theory, which states that; individuals with low self-efficacy tend to place less effort or avoid tasks, whereas high self-efficacy individuals increase their willingness to perform certain tasks. One main factor that influences self-efficacy in students is parental influence on the students education. This study tries to better understand the association between parental involvement and academic self-efficacy in first-generation college students.
