Digital Technology Self-efficacy Measure

Download to read offline

This is the digital technology self-efficacy measure we use in our research.

A 17-item digital technology self-efficacy measure adapted from Holcomb, King, & Brown (2004) who reported reliability µ=0.80. Language was updated replacing computer with digital technology. Items were measured with a scale of 1 (strongly disagree) to 4 (strongly agree). A 1.0 score reflects low digital technology self-efficacy, while a 4.0 represents high digital technology self-efficacy.
