Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Scale: Child's Work Copy and Examiner's Copy for Use with Third Grade. [Stanford Research Institute Adaptation].
Stanford Research Inst., Menlo Park, CA.
This test was adapted from the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Scale by V.C. Crandall, Walter Katkovsky, and Vaughan C. Crandall. It is a scale for assessing children's beliefs that they, rather than external forces, are responsible for their intellectual academic successes and failures. Previous data indicates that self responsibility is established by grade three and that older girls give more self-responsible answers than older boys. This scale is designed for use with third grade children. Each of the 34 items describes a positive or negative achievement experience followed by two response alternatives: one stating that the child caused the event to happen; and one that the event occurred because of an external behavioral action of someone else in the child's environment. A score is obtained by adding all positive events for which he takes credit and all negative events for which he takes blame. The total of thse two subscores gives the child's I score (intellectual achievement responsibility). (DEP)
