Abstract
The transition from secondary to higher education is a challenging process, in which the development of students motivation plays a pivotal role. The current study examines whether self-efficacyand how it developsis able to explain the growth in motivation. The current longitudinal study included five waves, across a period of 25 months (i.e. start of the final year of secondary education until the beginning of the second year of higher education). Results showcontrary to our hypothesis based on the self-determination theory and social cognitive theorythat the growth in autonomous motivation positively predicts the growth in self-efficacy and that this reversed model is superior in terms of fit and explained variance to the hypothesised model.
