Abstract Title: Developing a Coding Scheme for Self-Efficacy Opportunity Experiences
Abstract: Self-efficacy, or confidence in one's ability to perform a certain task, is often used as a predictor of academic persistence. Bandura's self-efficacy framework describes four types of experiences that provide opportunities for building self-efficacy. In this presentation, we will describe data collected from interviewing students at a large research university and the process of developing a coding scheme to characterize the self-efficacy opportunities they describe. The interview protocol elicited discussion of these students' self-efficacy to complete their science degrees, navigate the academic requirements, and continue in their chosen life paths, specifically drawing out mastery, vicarious learning, and social persuasion experiences. We will discuss the addition of codes that add nuance to the self-efficacy framework and the utility and applicability of this coding scheme.
