Academic Self-Efficacy Assessment

in Self-Assessments

How is your sense of self-efficacy? If it is low, you will have a hard time maintaining motivation in graduate school and beyond. High self-efficacy will enable you to stick with dissertation writing, job hunting and publishing, no matter what boulders fall in your path.

The Self-Efficacy Scale

This self-efficacy scale is adapted from Schwarzer, R., & Jerusalem, M. (1995). Generalized Self-Efficacy scale. In J. Weinman, S. Wright, & M. Johnston, Measures in health psychology: A user’s portfolio. Causal and control beliefs (pp. 35-37). Windsor, UK: NFER-NELSON.
