Examining Self-Esteem Needs in School Programs Through Item Analysis.
Kohr, Richard L.
Assessment of self-esteem has been part of Pennsylvania's Educational Quality Assessment Program for 12 years. Since school building reports describe the results of assessment in predominantly norm referenced terms, additional information is needed to supplement the comparative data. This paper, intended for the practioner, describes an item analysis process designed to provide better insight into the self-esteem needs of students. The item analysis process has become a popular activity in workshops with school district staff. Examples of similar scoring schools with meaningful differences in terms of item clusters are given.
