The Academic Self-Efficacy Scale is an application of Self-Efficacy Theory to examine the relationship between self-efficacy and academic performance using 8-items rated on a 7-point scale.
The work of Chemers et al. (2001) has been widely cited.
The 8-items are rated on a 7-point Likert-type scale ranging from 1 = Very Untrue to 7 = Very True.
2. I know how to take notes.
6. I usually do very well in school and at academic tasks.
In the article describing the development and use of the ASE, the authors observed: “As predicted, academic self-efficacy was significantly and directly related to academic expectations and academic performance.” (Chemers et al., 2001, p. 61)
An Arabic version of the ASE developed by Almohazie (2018) revealed Cronbach’s alphas of .935 for men and .918 for women. The average item mean was 5.38 ( SD = 1.14).
