Abstract

This article presents the theoretical construct of self-efficacy encouragement and then introduces a 14 items scale known as Self-efficacy Encouragement Questionnaire (SEEQ) that is developed to measure what degree university lecturers encourage students to develop their academic sense efficacy. A Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis were used to explore the psychometric properties of the scale. 194 undergraduate students participated in the pilot study section while another 300 undergraduate students involved in the Confirmatory Factor Analysis test. The PCA attempts to answer the research question 1: What is the psychometric soundness of the self-efficacy encouragement questionnaire? The CFA aims to answer the research question 2: Do the self-efficacy encouragement hypothesized model fit the collected data from the UKM undergraduate students? The PCA and CFA results indicated that the Self-efficacy Encouragement Questionnaire (SEEQ) is an established instrument with acceptable validity and reliability and it justified to be used in other studies.
