Assessment name: STUDENT SELF-EFFICACY SCALE
* Note. This post has been updated to provide an available measure of student self-efficacy.
Scale overview: The student self-efficacy scale is a 10-item measure of self-efficacy. It was developed using data from university nursing students in the United States.
Authors: Melodie Rowbotham and Gerdamarie Schmitz
Response Type: A four-choice rating scale as follows:
1 = not at all true
2 = hardly true
3 = moderately true
4 = exactly true
There are 10 items. Examples:
I am confident in my ability to learn, even if I am having a bad day.
If I try hard enough, I can obtain the academic goals I desire.
The authors reported that their sample scores ranged from 25 to 40 with a scale mean of 34.23 (SD = 3.80. Internal consistency was high at alpha = .84.
The authors reported the results of a principal components analysis, which offered some support for a one-dimensional scale.
The full set of 10 items can be found in the article— see the reference.

The scale was developed on a small sample of young university students. The authors built the scale following the theory developed by Bandura and considered items from a related measure. See their literature review for details.
At the time of this review, the full article with the items was available for downloading as a pdf file.
