Dropout Scale.
Smith, John E.; And Others
This prognostic or identification instrument is the original 34-item rating scale used in the validity study reported in TM 000 189. Its purpose is to identify dropout-prone high school students, particularly Appalachian adolescents. It is designed to be self-rating for all students who can read at or above the fifth grade level and to be easily administered and quickly scored. The items are simple multiple-choice questions. The pilot study revealed 18 of the 34 items to be sufficiently discriminating and predictive to be retained in the revised scale. (DG)
