Measuring Learned Resourcefulness in College Students: Factor Structure of the Self-Control Schedule (SCS)
McWhirter, Benedict T.; Burrow-Sanchez, Jason J.; Townsend, Katesy C.
College Student Journal, v42 n4 p1099-1109 Dec 2008
Rosenbaum's Self-Control Schedule (SCS) has been used as a unidimensional measure of Learned Resourcefulness (LR) in previous research. In this study we clarified the factor structure of the SCS among college students (N = 583) by conducting a principal axis factor analysis with oblique (Oblimin) rotation on the SCS. Results revealed a three-factor solution that accounted for 36.37% of the total variance, indicating the potential of the measure to assess three theoretically consistent aspects of LR, labeled as "Planful Behavior," "Coping Efficacy," and "Affective Thought Management." Implications for college counseling practice and research are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
