Norms for the North York Self Concept Inventory: Intermediate and Primary Levels. Research Report.
The development and norms for the Intermediate North York Self Concept Inventory for grades two through six and the Primary Self Concept Inventory for grade one are presented. The Intermediate instrument is comprised of 30 items on aspects of student self esteem related to the school environment or the "general self," and with a high degree discriminatory power between high and low self-concept. The items are declarative statements of self-concept requiring "true" or "not true" responses. Intermediate norms data presented allow comparison of a pupil's score to that of his or her North York peers in grades two to six and comparison of class average scores across North York classes in grades two and three. The Primary Self Concept Inventory contains 24 items of which 20 are scored. Primary students responded by marking a sad or happy face for each item. Norms data for the primary instrument is based on 66 grade one classes. Suggestions for classroom activities to improve self-concepts are provided with materials information. The appendices contain copies of the Primary and Intermediate Self Concept Inventories. (CM)
