Self Concept Picture Inventory.
Wiseman, E. Delphine; Adams, James H.
The Self Concept Picture Inventory (SCPI) was created to evaluate Title I schools, grades one to three, in Atton, Illinois. Specifically, the SCPI measured the impact of counseling programs upon self-image and attitudes toward school and peer groups; and the influence of community services upon students' responses to the general educational program. The SCPI was administered at the beginning and end of successive school years to 225 children in nine schools. Results indicated that improvement in self-concept for each school ranged from a low of 25% to a high of 75%. The SCPI contains 48 sub-titled puctures of stick figures involved in a school activity. Students mark the picture most closely corresponding to their own feelings. The teacher also completes the SCPI for each student. Previous administrations of the SCPI indicated that children see themselves as having more "self-worth" than do their teachers. Teachers can thereby adjust for misconceptions and also design activities to enhance concepts of those children evidencing particularly negative responses. (This document contains the SCPI--also known as At School--and directions for administration and scoring. (Author/CP)
