In this vein, the present study ...

Perceptions of one's environment and functional status have been linked to physical activity in older adults.

We examined the roles played by neighborhood satisfaction, functional limitations, self-efficacy, and physical activity in a sample of older women over a 6-month period.

The Morgan-Jinks Student Efficacy Scale (MJSES) was designed to gain information about student efficacy beliefs that might relate to school success. Although self report measures seeking similar data do exist the majority of these are focused on older students including adults. Gorrell and Capron, 1988 and 1989; Gorrell and Partridge, 1985, Hackett and Campbell, 1987 are a few cases in point. In other cases, self efficacy data are presented with little accompanying information about the measure itself (Andrews & Debus, 1978; Marsh, et. al., 1991). In yet others, self efficacy data is gleaned from a more concrete activity ...
