Measures for Psychological Assessment: A Guide to 3,000 Original Sources and Their Applications.
Chun, Ki-Taek; And Others
This volume is a compilation of annotated references to social science measures and is designed to facilitate the search for and retrieval of appropriate measurement information in several fields of interest. The volume should be particularly useful to researchers as well as teachers and students in psychology, sociology, social work, psychiatry, public health, and political science. The volume grew out of an effort to build a comprehensive, computerized national repository of social science measures. The first of the volume's two major sections lists the original sources for each of 3,000 instruments of attitude measurement. The Applications section cites and annotates all of the studies in which each measure was subsequently used. Entries were obtained through a search of 26 measurement-related journals in psychology and sociology from the period of 1960-70. Author and descriptor indices are included to facilitate the use of these major sections. (RC)
