Scaling of Student Self-Report Instruments. A Report Submitted to the Prevention Branch of NIDA. The NAPA Project.
Moskowitz, Joel M.; And Others
The scaling procedures and the results obtained upon applying such procedures to the student self-report data collected in 1978-1979 are outlined in this report. The first section of the paper describes the two general scaling procedures: oblique multiple groups confirmatory factor analysis and Guttman scale analysis. The second section covers the results of scaling the Self Observation Scales and the Student Questionnaire. These instruments measure classroom/school environment, personal satisfaction and perceived peer attitudes toward school. The third section contains results obtained from scaling the My Opinion Survey, an elementary-level questionnaire assessing perceived norms, attitudes and behaviors regarding drug use. The final section summarizes the results of scaling the Drug and Alcohol Survey, a secondary level questionnaire assessing perceived norms, attitudes, intentions and behaviors regarding drug use. With the exception of the Self Observation Scales, the instruments used for this study are provided in appendices. (Author/AL)
