Description
  • Abstract

    General self-efficacy describes the global confidence in one’s own competence and is relevant for a variety of settings, such as health-related, social, and motivational contexts. The General Self-Efficacy Short Scale–3 (GSE-3)—the English-language adaptation of the German-language scale “Allgemeine Selbstwirksamkeit Kurzskala” (ASKU; Beierlein, Kovaleva, et al., 2014)— enables to measure GSE with only three items in a very economical way. The scale further meets excellent quality criteria, such as objectivity, reliability, factorial, and construct validity, and scalar measurement invariance holds across the UK and Germany. GSE-3 is particularly suitable to be applied in large social science surveys.
