Abstract

Findings from 10 studies converged toward the conclusion that the easy-difficult item is an indicator of perceived PBC. However, since the easy-difficult item is sometimes classified as both Aact and PBC, and only the perceived difficulty dimension of PBC captures a significant increment in the variance of intention, it appears important to develop and validate a set of items devoted to measure the perceived difficulty dimension adequately.
