Abstract Share this page

Constructed and tested a Chinese version of R. Schwarzer's (1993) General Self-Efficacy Scale. Using a sample of 293 university students, the internal consistency was .91. The scale was also completed by a bilingual sample of 43 Chinese students who filled out the English version followed, 3 wks later, by the Chinese version. The lagged correlation between both versions was .71. Further psychometric properties are described that underscore the usefulness of the inventory. It was found that men scored on average higher in general self-efficacy than women, which is in line with results from previous samples. Preliminary norms are given to encourage further field testing of this scale. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
