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.

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

Sample Items

  8. Remember information presented in class and textbooks?
