Handbook of Management Scales/Feedback self-efficacy
Feedback self-efficacy (alpha > 0.70)
A multidimensional measure of feedback orientation is developed and validated. This feedback orientation scale (FOS) was developed and refined using two pilot studies and two focal studies. Across these studies, substantial support was found for a four-dimension FOS scale. The four dimensions are utility, accountability, social awareness, and feedback self-efficacy. Study 1 found substantial support for the reliability and validity of the scale. Study 2 provided support for the generalizability of results to a field sample, with five of the six hypotheses retested being supported.
Feedback orientation is defined as an individual’s overall receptivity to feedback.
Feedback self-efficacy is defined as an individual’s tendency to have confidence in dealing with feedback situations and feedback.
Administer these items using a 5-point scale from strongly disagree to strongly agree.

- Compared to others, I am more competent at handling feedback.
- I believe that I have the ability to deal with feedback effectively.
- I feel confident when responding to both positive and negative feedback.
- I know that I can handle the feedback that I receive.
