Student Survey and Attitude Inventory: Form A.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Research.
This form of the Student Survey and Attitude Inventory (SSAI) used for the fall administration of the South Carolina Statewide Testing Program has two parts. The first contains a 25 question study survey which requires a total of 80 responses by the student. The questions elicit information about the students, their background, and attitudes. The second section contains 89 statements for which each respondent is asked to indicate his or her degree of agreement on a four-point scale. The inventory includes statements relating to nine different aspects of personality. These provide subscores in the areas of self-reliance, work-orientation, identity, communication skills, enlightened trust, knowledge of major roles, social commitment, openness to sociopolitical change, and tolerance of individual and cultural differences. Self-concept is measured by the items in the self-reliance, work-orientation, and identity subscales, which when looked at together form the Individual Adequacy Scale. Since a mature response on some items requires a response of A, agree strongly, and on other items requires a response of D, disagree strongly, some item responses must be reversed in scoring to make it possible to score responses consistently.
