Development of an Instrument to Measure Self-Concept as a Communicator.
Hochel, Sandra
Because of the close relationship between self-concept and behavior, knowledge and understanding of self-perception is vital to improving communicative behavior. A few measurement instruments have been developed that globally assess the self-concepts of communicators and public speakers. Self-concept concerning communication ability is, however, many-faceted. This paper presents an original instrument, the Index of Self-Concept as a Communicator, which assesses the following aspects of self-concept: small-group and dyadic ability, public-speaking ability, listening skills, language ability, content factors (judgment of worth of one's ideas, reasoning ability, and desire to communicate), and persuasive ability. The procedures used to obtain validation of the scale are described, and the scale itself is included. (KS)
