PERSONAL-SOCIAL AND VOCATIONAL SCALE FOR THE MENTALLY RETARDED.
ELZEY, FREEMAN F.; LEVINE, SAMUEL
AN EVALUATION INSTRUMENT WAS DEVELOPED TO ASSESS THE PERSONAL-SOCIAL AND VOCATIONAL COMPETENCE OF DEPENDENT AND SEMIDEPENDENT MENTALLY RETARDED INDIVIDUALS IN A VOCATIONAL WORKSHOP SETTING. TWO PRETESTS WERE DEVELOPED, ADMINISTERED, EVALUATED, AND REFINED BEFORE THE FINAL FORM OF THE EVALUATION INSTRUMENT WAS CONSTRUCTED. FOLLOWING ANALYSES OF SUCH PRETEST SUBSCALES AS "MANUAL SKILLS,""COGNITIVE SKILLS,""DEPENDABILITY-RESPONSIBILITY," AND "SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL," 30 ITEMS WHICH HAD SHOWN APPROPRIATE STATISTICAL PROPERTIES IN THE PRETEST WERE USED FOR THE FINAL FORM OF THE SCALE. DATA ON THE RELIABILITY OF THE FINAL FORM OF THE SCALE WERE PRESENTED IN TABLES APPENDED TO THE REPORT. ODD-EVEN CORRELATIONS WERE COMPUTED FOR THE MALE, FEMALE, AND TOTAL SAMPLE WHICH INDICATED A HIGH DEGREE OF INTERNAL CONSISTENCY. A TEST-RETEST COEFFICIENT OF .85 INDICATED THAT THE SCALE COULD BE USED RELIABLY BY INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH AN ENROLLEE'S PERFORMANCE. (GD)
