Self-Efficacy for Public Engagement with Science (PES)

This scale documents scientists' self-efficacy in their ability to conduct reciprocal public engagement activities. The scale can provide baseline data to describe the range of self-efficacy found among a group of scientists. If embedded within the context of a scientist training program, the scale has the potential to serve as a reflection tool for scientists by providing data on the relative strengths and areas of improvement in their PES activities. The scale can also be used as a longitudinal measure to document changes in self-efficacy over time. Using the scale in this way is advisable only in situations that involve a sustained intervention with multiple interaction points that take place over weeks or months.
