University students' perceived self-efficacy and justice datasets in a PBL project allocation context at a Sino-British international university in China
This research tested three hypotheses: H1. Perceived self-efficacy predicts perceived procedural justice; H2. Perceived self-efficacy predicts perceived distributive justice; H3. Perceived self-efficacy predicts perceived learning equity. The SEM test results reject the null hypothesis at a 0.1% significance level. Perceived self-efficacy was positively associated with perceived procedural justice, perceived distributive justice, and perceived learning equity. The data was collected in a PBL course at a Sino-British international university in China. This data link includes three excel files. The excel file named "scale questions" lists the question number and question description of the integrated scale used to collect data. The excel file named "PBL project allocation dataset1" includes the self-reported scale responses from sample 1 (N=226). Students of sample 1 used manual project allocation for PBL. The excel file named "PBL project allocation dataset2" includes the self-reported scale responses from sample 2 (N=537). Students of sample 2 used automated project allocation for PBL. The two datasets can be used for exploratory factor analysis with all the questions being included. They can also be used for confirmatory factor analysis to test the conceptual model proposed in our research paper that links to this data.
