General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE)


The General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE) is a 35 item questionnaire.

It aims to predict how people cope with daily hassles and adapting after stressful life events.

Items are scored on a 1-4 scale, with the total scale score calculated as a sum of the factor scores.
