SINOPSIS

Self-ratings of mathematical ability produce some of the largest gender differences among first-year college students. Further, mathematical self concept is the one measure of academic self-concept that declines during college. However, little research has focused on the predictors of math confidence for college students. This study examines factors related to changes in mathematical self-concept during college and focuses specifically on how these factors differ by gender and major field. Regression results indicate that traditional predictors of math confidence operate differently for men and women in science and nonscience fields.
