Marcus, Bernd
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v63 n4 p674-706 Aug 2003
Contrasted a new measure of self-control, the Retrospective Behavioral Self-Control scale (RBS), with the most widespread measure of this construct (H. Grasmick and others, 1993). Results show that the RBS measured the general factor of behavior across samples of 214 and 213 undergraduates and 76 employees, but the other scale, used with only one sample, did not. (SLD)
