    Abstract

    Does social work research education work? To answer this question, instructors employ an array of traditional measures, each with its own limitations and compromises. The validity and utility of student evaluations, for instance, continue to be intensely debated topics in higher education. This article presents the development of the Research Self-Efficacy scale which was designed to assess social work students' confidence in their ability to complete specific research activities. Preliminary evidence regarding reliability, validity, and sensitivity to change is presented.
