Abstract: The difficulties that sports studies students report regarding learning statistics typically manifests itself in low self-confidence to succeed. The purpose of the present study was to develop a measure of self-efficacy based on competencies identified by students as desirable for successful performance. Level one sport studies students (N = 130) were asked to describe competencies needed for success on a statistics module. Content analysis identified 44 meaningful competencies describing six factors: lecture behaviour; using information technology; motivated behaviour; time management; statistical theory and a general competencies factor. These competencies were written into a 44-item questionnaire. Future research should investigate the relationships between scores of self-efficacy and performance.
