The Prediction of Effortful Control to School Involvement: The Mediation Effect of Academic Self-Efficacy
Abstract: School involvement is a significant indicator of academic achievement of students. Thus it has attracted a lot of attention in school and educational psychological researches. It has detected that effortful control and academic self-efficacy are two influential factors on academic development. The current study collected data from two different samples to illustrate the relation between effortful control and school involvement. Effortful control has direct effect on both behavioral and emotional involvement after controlling the SES condition. Besides, it also influences school involvement through the mediation of academic self-efficacy. This mediation effect was found in both data samples and the model has been tested to be equal. It can be concluded that the mediation mechanism is stable among two Chinese student samples.
