Abstract:   (26 Views)
Background: The present research aimed at determining the reliability and validity of Persian version of emotional self-efficiency scale (ESES) for adolescents of Isfahan city. This study was conducted using a developmental research method. The statistical population consisted of all the first round high school students of Isfahan city in 2018 (n=59396).
Methods: A total number of 280 students (160 girls and 120 boys, mean age of 12.98±1.14) were selected using a stratified random sampling method, and completed ESES for adolescents (Qualte et al, 2015), as well as Self-Efficacy Questionnaire for Children (SEQ-C, Muris, 2001).
Results: An exploratory factor analysis (EFA) revealed the four-factor structure of ESES. A confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) also confirmed the fit of the four-factor structure of the scale. The results of the within group correlation coefficient were obtained to investigate the acceptable test-retest reliability. The results of the correlation between the above mentioned scale and SEQ-C instrument was also obtained to be significant (P<0.05). Moreover, ESES and its dimensions have proper reliability over time. The reliabilities obtained by Cronbachchr('39')s alpha for all four dimensions of the questionnaire given the number of items were higher than 0.5 in each dimension and higher than 0.7 in the whole scale. These values are acceptable.  
 Conclusion: These findings indicate the acceptable validity and reliability of ESES for Isfahanchr('39')s adolescents, and its validity and reliability should be investigated in a broader research on Iranian children and adolescents.
