Evaluation of the Self-Efficacy Questionnaire for Children in Two Samples of American Adolescents
Suldo, Shannon M.; Shaffer, Emily J.
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v25 n4 p341-355 2007
Two studies addressed the psychometric properties of the Self-Efficacy Questionnaire for Children (SEQ-C) when used in studies with American youths. A sample of 697 middle and high school students completed the SEQ-C along with measures of life satisfaction and psychopathology. Exploratory factor analysis procedures supported the existence of three factors representing emotional, social, and academic self-efficacy. Criterion-related validity was established through correlations, in the expected directions, between the domains of self-efficacy and psychological functioning. The study was repeated with a sample of 318 high school students. Both studies provide support for use of the SEQ-C with early and late American adolescents from the Southeast. (Contains 3 tables.)
