Self-Efficacy and Academic Motivation of Students in a Catholic High School with Parents Working Abroad
Psychologists argue that individuals’ choice, persistence, and drive expended in performance can be predicted and explained basically by their self-efficacy and motivation. Research on self-efficacy theory has examined the contribution of students' emerging perceptions of their academic abilities, and confidence that they can finish specific academic tasks, predictions about educational outcomes, and interpretation of success and experiences. Hence, the study intends to assess the level of one's capability to achieve and accomplish specific tasks and factors that might influence their motivation towards the academic performance among students in a Catholic high school in Antique with parents working abroad. Likewise, it explores whether self-efficacy relates to the academic motivation of students.
