Resident assistants' self-efficacy beliefs about their abilities to positively influence the development of students were examined in a multi-institution study. One hundred and eleven resident assistants (57% female; 70%White, 6% Hispanic, 4% African American, 2% Asian-American, 1% Native-American) completed the Resident Assistant Self-Efficacy Scale. This article describes the development of a valid and reliable self-efficacy instrument, which has practical and research implications for understanding the thoughts and behaviors of resident assistants.
