Rice, Kenneth G.; Preusser, Karen J.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v34 n4 p210-22 Jan 2002
Describes the development of the Adaptive/Maladaptive Perfectionism Scale (AMPS) for children. Expert reviewers and samples of 4th- and 5th-grade students were used to develop items and evaluate the internal structure and reliability of scores for the resulting instrument. Results supported 4 dimensions of perfectionism that could be reliably assessed: Sensitivity to Mistakes, Contingent Self-Esteem, Compulsiveness, and Need for Admiration.
