Understanding Self-Efficacy and the Design of Personal Informatics Tools
Adrienne Andrew, Gaetano Borriello, James Fogarty
The design of many personal informatics tools or approaches for behavior change can be influenced by Social Cognitive Theory, which suggests self-efficacy impacts ability to change. Self-efficacy is easy to measure and indicates adherence to behavioral strategies. This makes it an attractive construct for evaluation of PI technologies. In this workshop paper, we discuss what self-efficacy is, how to measure it, and three factors that impact the measurements.
