Description[edit | edit source]
The 5-point Likert-type scale for team psychological safety was developed from previous literature in order to assure content validity. It was based on items taken from Edmondson (1999).
Definition[edit | edit source]
Team psychological safety refers to team members feeling safe to discuss errors by openly seeking input from others who are needed to make required changes.

The AVE value was below 0.5 and the factor loading of item three was below 0.6 and these values are, thus, too low.
