Abstract

Current literature on selfefficacy is extensive while at the same time confusing, possibly because ofthe sheer volume available. This paper presents a description of the self efficacy construct anddiscussion of research that has been undertaken into the mediating variables.Interestingly, research that involves students with learning difficulties is relatively scant. The available research on self efficacy among those who have learning difficulties will be situated within a model of human motivation provided by Schunk (1989). Implications from the research as well as techniques that can be employed to improve students'self efficacy are proposed.
