Resumen

OMELAS, Martha; BLANCO, Humberto; VICIANA, Jesús  y  RODRIGUEZ, Judith M. Perceived self-efficacy in problem solving and communication in university students of engineering and social sciences. Form. Univ. [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.4, pp.93-100. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062015000400011.

The purpose of the present study was to compare the profiles of perceived self-efficacy in problem solving and communication between engineering and social sciences university students. A sample of 1181 participants was considered; 592 from engineering and 589 from social sciences, with average age of 18 years. A quantitative approach with a descriptive and transversal survey design was used. All the participants completed the Self-efficacy in problem solving and scientific communication Scale. The results of the analysis of variance showed that perceived self-efficacy profiles in problem solving and in scientific communication are very similar among students of social sciences and engineering in the four indices studied. Therefore the idea that to university careers in social sciences arrive students of "lower quality" that the engineering’s is a prejudice, at least according to the perceived self-efficacy.

Palabras clave : student's beliefs; higher education; perceived ability; student characteristics.
