Self-Efficacy: A Mediating Role in Agricultural Study
Little research is available that describes how tertiary agricultural students cope with their first year university studies. This study attempted to till this void by focusing on self-efficacy, persistence and satisfaction. Structural equation modelling, using AMOS, was employed to test the validity of a model drawing on first year tertiary agricultural students from a rural-based university and an urban-based university. The results of this work show constructs in the model, including self-efficacy, future orientation, and generic skills self-estimates, were key predictors of student persistence and satisfaction.
