Abstract

In a longitudinal design, 650 young adolescents’ multi-faceted self-efficacy beliefs (academic, social and self-regulatory), academic achievement and peer preference in middle school were used to predict life satisfaction five years later. Hierarchical regression analysis showed that for both genders, academic and social self-efficacy beliefs inearly adolescence were better predictors of life satisfaction in late adolescence than early academic achievement and peer preference. Furthermore, change in academic and social self-efficacy beliefs significantly contributed to predict life satisfaction over the course of five years. -
