Adjective Rating Scales for Self Description.
Veldman, Donald J.; Parker, George V. C.
Factor analysis of Gough's 300-item Adjective Check List identified eight highest-loading items for seven factors of self-perception. These were alphabetized and presented with 5-point scales to 713 females in teacher training. Factor analysis of the 56 self-rating items replicated the original structure, and simple scale sums showed satisfactory internal consistency and test-retest stability. Correlations with another self-description inventory evidenced concurrent validity of the instrument, which should be valuable for rapid, straight-forward, quantified self-description. (Author)
