Abstract

This paper will present the development of the Inernet Self-Efficacy Scale (ISES). The purpose of this scale is to evaluate the degree of one's self-confidence about using the Internet. This scale currently includes 13 items measured on a 4-point Likert scale. With an overall reliability coefficient alpha of 0.92, all of the items can be categorized into the following two subscales: exploration and communication. While administering to 359 high school students in Taiwan, the result showed that students' ISES scores were significantly correlated with the time they spent on using the Internet. There was not any significant difference found between the genders regarding the students' overall Internet self-efficacies. However, boys seemed to be more confident in Internet exploration than girls, and girls seemed to be more confident in Internet communication than boys.
