A Selection of Self Concept Measures.
Knapp, Joan, Comp.
This compilation is comprised of descriptions of instruments for measuring self-concept. The instruments were chosen on the basis of the following criteria: they should be suitable for and reflect the full age range of children in school; each of the categories in Coller's model--self report, projective, behavior trace, and direct observation--should be represented; they should have been designed with the so-called "normal" population in mind rather than a psychopathological population; they have enough information accompanying them to enable investigators to use them effectively; and they should reflect a variety of means of presentation (e.g., prictorial items, semantic differential). The instruments described are: Work Posting; The Children's Self-Social Constructs Test; The Children's Self-Concept Index; Responsible Self-Concept Test; Behavior Rating Form; Coopersmith Self Esteem Inventory; Tennessee Self Concept Scale; How I See Myself Scale (Primary and Secondary Form); A Semantic Differential for Measurement of Global and Specific Self Concepts; The Piers-Harris Children's Self Concept Scale (The Way I Feel about Myself); Michigan State General Self Concept of Ability, Michigan State Self Concept of Ability in Specific Subjects Scales; and Self Esteem Measure for Neighborhood Youth Corps Enrolees.
