Dr. J. Derek Lopez, Professor of Psychology and Director, Center of Academic Enrichment, Colorado State University-Pueblo, will examine the changes in self-efficacy among Latinos during the freshman year in a highly selective institution.  Results indicate that gender differences exist during this period. Males rate themselves high in self-efficacy at the beginning of the year, while females rate themselves low. An interaction effect occurs at the end of the year, and the ratings of self-efficacy are similar for both males and females.  Possible explanations for the interaction effect are discussed.
