Academic Self-Efficacy Scale for Students


High School Students/ Bing images Free to use

The ASESS (Academic Self-Efficacy for Students) is designed to measure students’ opinions about their ability to perform well on academic tasks. High scoring students earn better grades and are more persistent compared to low scoring students. Those with high scores also use more effective cognitive strategies, organize their time more efficiently, and are better at self-regulation.

The 11-items are rated on a 1 to 5 basis from “No Confidence at all” to “Complete Confidence.”


The instructions on the scale ask the students: “How much confidence do you have that you can successfully...”

Sample Items

1. Finish homework assignments by deadlines?

8. Remember information presented in class and textbooks?

The scale is reported as an adaptation from Zimmerman et al. (1992) and Chemers et al. (2001).
