The Loyola Sentence Completion Blank for Clergymen: Construction and Validation.
Sheehan, Mary A.; Kobler, Frank J.
It was hypothesized that a reliable and valid measure of the psychological adjustment of clergymen could be obtained by constructing a sentence completion test. The items were designed to measure the following six areas: (1) self-perception, (2) interpersonal relations, (3) psychosexual maturity, (4) priesthood, (5) Church-faith, and (6) job satisfaction. A 72-item test was constructed and administered to 115 priests. The protocols were judged using an empirically based scoring manual. The results indicated that the r's for reliability ranged from .84 to .96, and the biserial r's ranged from .62 to .86 for validity, thereby supporting the hypotheses. (Author)
