Technical Analysis of Scores on the "Self-Efficacy Self-Report Scale"
Erford, Bradley T.; Schein, Hallie; Duncan, Kelly
Assessment for Effective Intervention, v37 n1 p58-64 Dec 2011
The purpose of this study was to provide preliminary analysis of reliability and validity of scores on the "Self-Efficacy Self-Report Scale", which was designed to assess general self-efficacy in students aged 10 to 17 years. Confirmatory factor analysis on cross-validated samples was conducted revealing a marginal fit of the data to the 19-item unidimensional scale. Studies of internal consistency and test-retest reliability revealed adequate levels of total scale consistency. Criterion-related validity estimates were moderate to strong. Norms and a test protocol are provided to encourage free use of the scale for student assessment and research purposes. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
