This Digital Technology Self-Efficacy survey was constructed and adapted using 17-item computer self-efficacy scale from Holcomb et al., 2004, which was also adapted from Cassidy & Eachus’ (2002) self-efficacy instrument of 30-items. This scale aims to measure respondents’ confidence in technology in general.
