Abstract Title: Inverse Correlation Between Calculus Proficiency and Calculus Self-Efficacy in Introductory Physics
Abstract Type: Contributed Poster Presentation
Abstract: We investigated changes in calculus proficiency and calculus self-efficacy during introductory physics using separate assessments.  While all students demonstrated an increase in calculus proficiency, potentially also displaying an improvement in calculus transfer to physics, women displayed larger gains than men.  Conversely, men showed larger gains in calculus self-efficacy.  Taken together, these data suggest that student identity affects the correlation between a student's calculus abilities and their perception or self-evaluation of those abilities.
