R-04: The Roles of Academic and Bicultural Self-Efficacy on Academic Achievement Among Hispanic Students Verbalizations
10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Hispanic American students are at-risk for low academic achievement and educational attainment. The purpose of the current study is to examine the relationship between academic self-efficacy and bicultural self-efficacy (i.e., perceived biculturalism), and their relation with academic achievement. This presentation will cover previous research, methodology, results, and implications for educators. Results may inform educators and psychologists’ practice and services.
