GONZALEZ, Mauricio; MEZA, Paulina  e  CASTELLON, Melissa. Measurement of Self-Efficacy for Academic Writing. A Theoretical-Bibliographic Review. Form. Univ. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.6, pp.191-204. ISSN 0718-5006.

A review of investigations published in the open national and international literature on self-efficacy associated with the performance of academic writing. Especial consideration is given to those in which standardized measuring instruments are used, for analyzing the main characteristics of such instruments and the conclusions of the corresponding studies. A theoretical-bibliographic research, whose sample consisted of 16 articles that met the inclusion criteria, was developed. The main results show that the English language predominates in the instruments, and that the studies are mainly conducted in the United States. In Latin America practically there is no research published on the subject. In addition, 62.5% of the investigations does not meet the current standards for instrument validation. In conclusion, it is required to conduct more rigorous research on the relationship between self-efficacy for the production of academic texts and the performance of students in this area, especially considering texts of highly specialized disciplines.
