This action research project examined the effect of self-modeling videotapes on self-efficacy levels in regards to the attainment of specific performance related goals of NCAA Division II wrestlers. The researcher also aimed to determine whether athletic performance would improve due to the increase of self-efficacy levels. Student-athletes from Southwest Minnesota State University's 2005-2006 wrestling program participated in the study. Participants completed the Self-Efficacy Survey on a specific schedule depending on the group to which they were assigned. Analysis of the data consisted of means, frequencies, standard deviations, and correlation coefficients. The findings of the study revealed viewing self-modeling videotapes improved overall self-efficacy levels among the experimental group. The findings, although not a significant level, also revealed a positive relationship between efficacy scores and performance. Most notably, the strongest relationship was demonstrated in post-test data between takedowns scored and corresponding efficacy levels.Instrumentation Subjects viewed a self-modeling video tape developed through the use of a digital Sony DCR-TRV350 video camera recorder and a Macintosh PowerBook G4, which included the iMovie and iDVD editing software.
