Abstract PDFSupplementary Material

The current study aimed to investigate the reliability and validity of the Self Rated Abilities for Health Practices: Health Self-Efficacy Measure (SRAHP), originally developed by Becker et al. (1993).


Two hundred and seventy-eight college students participated in this study.


The inter-item reliability was high (Cronbach alpha=0.909). Factor analysis produced 6 factors of subscales (i.e., exercise, illness, emotion, nutrition, stress, and health practice subscales), which is more ramified compared to original study with 4 subscales (i.e., exercise, well-being, nutrition, health practices). The correlation analyses between K-SRAHP and the self-promoting lifestyle profile, the generalized self-efficacy scale, the perceived benefits scale, and the social desirability scale supported criterion-related validity.


The reliability and validity of K-SRAHP to measure self-efficacy of health practice was validated. Additionally, the limitations and suggestions for further studies were provided.
