North York Self Concept Inventory: Secondary School Norms. Research Report.
Cassidy, Phil; Broks, Gloria
The norms are reported for the North York Self Concept Inventory, developed for secondary school students. The 25-item instrument is meant to examine aspects of self-esteem related to the school environment, self or peers, with high discriminatory power between high- and low-scoring groups of students. Development of the instrument and norms for each of grades 10, 11, 12, and 13 for both general and advanced level students are provided. The items are declarative statements of self-concept requiring "true" or "not true" responses. Students in the pilot testing were randomly selected by classes in nine North York secondary schools. The statistical results and distribution of scores at each grade level are presented with student comments on the pilot testing. Five suggestions for classroom activities to improve self concept are described. The appendix contains a copy of the instrument. (CM)
