Like parent like child? : A quantitative study on how parents' educational levels affect academic self-efficacy among university students at advanced level (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the present study was to examine how the academic confidence among first year and second year master students were affected by the students’ parents educational level. 47 students on advanced level completed a questionnaire examining self-efficacy (SE), a concept that Albert Bandura (1997) defined as the level of confidence individuals have in their ability to execute courses of action or attain specific performance results. The questionnaire also included questions regarding the students’ parents educational level, the students gender, age and campus. The results indicated that the students SE in no significant matter were affected by the parents’ educational level. Neither did the students gender or campus significantly affect their SE. There was a significant negative correlation between the age of students and SE, which showed that as the age of the students increased, their SE decreased.

Abstract [sv]

Målsättningen med den aktuella studien var att undersöka hur magister- och masterstudenters tilltro till sin studieförmåga påverkades av deras respektive föräldrars utbildningsnivå. 47 studenter på avancerad nivå fick svara på en enkät som undersökte graden av self-efficacy (SE), vilket Albert Bandura (1997) definierade som förmågan att ta sig an en uppgift och slutföra den, samt nå ett på förhand uppsatt mål. Enkäten omfattade även information om studenternas föräldrars utbildningsnivå, studenternas kön, ålder och studieort. Resultaten visade att studenternas SE inte påverkades signifikant av föräldrarnas utbildningsnivå. Inte heller studenternas kön, eller studieort hade någon signifikant påverkan på SE. Däremot fanns en signifikant negativ korrelation mellan studenternas ålder och SE, vilken visade på att i takt med att åldern på studenterna ökade, så minskade deras SE.
