RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A MEASURE OF SELF-CONCEPT.
SILVER, NANCY
A MEASURE OF SELF-CONCEPT, CONSISTING OF A SERIES OF THREE TESTS, WAS RECOMMENDED TO AID THE STUDY OF ADOLESCENCE IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL AND TO PROVIDE THE ADOLESCENT WITH A KNOWLEDGE OF SELF-CONCEPT THAT COULD HELP IN DECISION MAKING, PERCEPTION, AND THE ACQUISITION OF VALUES. SELF-CONCEPT RESEARCH AND THEORIES WERE REVIEWED AND REPORTED, AND VARIOUS CONCEPTUAL VIEWPOINTS WERE DISCUSSED. STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES OF SUCH SELF-CONCEPT MEASUREMENT INSTRUMENTS AS CHECKLISTS, Q-SORTS, RATING SCALES, OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS, AND VARIOUS PROJECTIVE DEVICES WERE ANALYZED. THE RECOMMENDED MEASURE CONSISTED OF THREE TEST ITEMS SELECTED TO COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER. THESE ITEMS WERE A Q-SORT, A SENTENCE-COMPLETION BLANK, AND AN INTERVIEW. A SAMPLE OF THE PROPOSED TEST ITEMS WAS INCLUDED IN THE REPORT. (AL)
