The Relationship of Scores on Three Personality Assessment Instruments to Reading Levels.
Schoolcraft, Denzil R.; And Others
In order to discover whether significant relationships exist between factors of self-concept and parent attitude and the reading level recommended for students evaluated by a reading clinic, the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale was administered to 60 children, while the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale and Maryland Parent Attitude Survey were administered to their mothers. Analysis of results showed only two statistically significant relationships, both indicating that family relationships and self-concept enter the picture of reading disability. Results led the authors to question seriously the usefulness of these instruments in reading clinics. (JM)
