A Factor Analysis of the Laurelton Self-Concept Scale. Volume 1, Number 14.
Harrison, Robert H.; Budoff, Milton
Items from the Laurelton Self Concept Scale (LSCS) and the Locus of Control Scale for Children were administered to 172 male and female educable mental retardates to examine the LSCS by R factor analysis. It was found that the Self Concept Scale is factor analyzable when appropriately administered to educables. The small factors grouped into larger factors in ways that made psychological sense. There were independent factors for complimentary self-attitudes and for derogatory ones. The relationships between rotated solutions are explained. (RJ)
