Enhancing self-efficacy in first year students

This research finds that:

"Subject-specific self-concepts of ability predict study-related self-concepts of ability according to individuals' similarity judgements. Subject-specific mastery experience predicts expectancy of success only if the respective school subject is emphasized in the course description."

So again making the link to previous study/knowledge explicitly enhances learning and student success.
