About You and Your Friends: An Instrument of the PRIME Instrument Battery. Technical Report No. 1.
Agard, Judith A.; And Others
This technical report is one of a series concerning the instrumentation for Project PRIME, which investigated the relationship of regular and special education classroom environments to student characteristics. About You and Your Friends (AYYF) is a self-report inventory of the affective characteristics of students. The instrument is suitable for use with normal and mildly handicapped students in the elementary grades. It measures four attitude and self-concept constructs: isolation/anxiety, school enthusiasm, academic competence, and misbehavior. AYYF was designed to be used in conjunction with two other PRIME instruments, the Teacher Rating Scale and Guess Who; these provide teacher and peer ratings of the same traits. The technical report is organized in four parts: (1) an introduction to Project PRIME and AYYF; (2) the development of AYYF, including the design and construction of the instrument, the scaling methodology and development of empirical scales, and instrument revision; (3) the psychometric properties of the instrument, including the nature of the sample and the conditions under which the psychometric data were collected; and (4) a summary.
