Demographic, Historical and Ability Correlates of the Laurelton Self-Concept Scale in an Educable Mentally Retarded Sample. Volume 1, Number 15.
Harrison, Robert H.; Budoff, Milton
To investigate the validity of the Laurelton Self Concept Scale (LSCS), 172 educable retardates on whom the original factor analysis was done served as subjects. The LSCS was administered orally and criterion variables were broken down into ten groups. Results indicated that reported self concepts of the educable bear considerable relationships to the objective facts of their role, situation, and behavior. The directions of some of the relationships were the reverse of what might have been expected indicating the operation of denial. High threat areas evoked more denial than low, and low intelligence was more associated with denial than high in this study. Tables of data are included. (RJ)
