Self-Efficacy as a Function of Attributional Feedback
Jain, Sachin; Bruce, Mary Alice; Stellern, John; Srivastava, Namita
Journal of School Counseling, v5 n4 2007
The researchers investigated the effect of attributional feedback on self efficacy judgments among a sample of 192 eighth grade students. Self efficacy judgments were measured by the scale developed by Bandura and Schunk (1981). The results showed that improvement in self efficacy judgments was significantly more for attributional feedback conditions as compared to no attributional feedback conditions. When different feedback conditions were compared, it was found that the effort feedback affected the self efficacy judgments most positively; ability feedback was second, and ability + effort was in the third position.
