Abstract: According to Bandura (1982a, 1982b), psychological procedures change behavior in part by creating and strengthening self-efficacy , or one's perceived performance capabilities in a given activity. Self-efficacy is hypothesized to influence choice of activities, effort expended, persistence, and task accomplishments. Although self-efficacy originally was used to help explain coping behaviors in fearful situations, its use has been extended to other contexts, including cognitive-skill learning (Schunk, 1985).
