Research on memory self-efficacy has been carried out by several authors including Jane Berry, Margie Lachman, John Cavanaugh, Roger Dixon, Chris Hertzog, Mary Luszcz and others. The list below represents a sampling of the research by Robin West that examines memory self-efficacy using some form of the Memory Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (MSEQ). If you use the MSEQ in research, please share the results with Robin West. Thank you!
