Past research has shown us that males have higher self-efficacy and motivation in the subjects of mathematics/science, and females have higher self-efficacy and motivation in the subject of English (reading/writing). This paper explores the constructs of self-efficacy, domain-specific self-efficacy, differences in gender related to academic self-efficacy, and research that has been done on interventions related to academic self-efficacy in the past. The aim of this paper is to develop intervention designs that help improve academic self-efficacy and motivation for females in the field of mathematics/ science, and improve academic self-efficacy and motivation for males in the field of English (reading/writing).
