This study compared three measures of self-efficacy and assessed the responses of self-efficacy on the basis of A. Bandura's (1997) conceptualization. The responses of 331 undergraduates to a series of inventories yielded three variables descriptive of the self-efficacy process; a causal model of the intercorrelations of these variables was constructed from predictions based on self-efficacy theory. A confirmatory factor analysis indicated that the self-efficacy measures of science, mathematics, and self-regulated learning exhibited discriminant validity.
