Lifespan Self-Esteem Scale

 


The Lifespan Self-Esteem Scale is a 4-item measure of self-esteem. The items are rated on a 5-point scale.

Self-esteem is a dimension of self-concept. Self-esteem is the value people place on themselves. We learn our value in various social contexts. Self-esteem is also related to the dimension of self-concept called self-efficacy.

Format

The items are presented with pictures of faces representing five different responses. (1 = really sad, 2 = sad, 3 = neutral, 4 = happy, 5 = really happy). The response options are also illustrated with faces depicting the appropriate feeling (really sad = crying face, sad = slight frown, neutral = flat mouth, happy = slight smile, really happy = open-mouthed smile).

Sample item

1. How do you feel about yourself?

Resources

See the SELF Lab at UC-Davis for a copy (Word and PDF) of the scale and research identifying its psychometric properties: https://selflab.ucdavis.edu/lifespan-self-esteem-scale-lse-0

There is also a manual for use in administering the scale to young children and people with limited literacy.

Personal Self-Concept Questionnaire (PSQ)

 



The Personal Self-Concept Questionnaire (PSQ) 

Overview

The Personal Self-Concept Questionnaire (PSQ) measures self-concept based on ratings of 18 items, which are grouped into four categories: Self-fulfilment, autonomy, honesty, and emotional self-concept.


Subscales: The PSQ has four subscales

1. Self-fulfilment

2. Autonomy

3. Honesty

4. Emotional self-concept

 👉 [Read more about Self-Concept and Self-Identity]

The PSQ is a Likert-type scale with five response options ranging from totally disagree to totally agree.

Reliability and Validity

In the first study, coefficient alpha = .85 and in study two, alpha = .83.

Data analysis supported a four-dimensional model (see the four categories above). Positive correlations with other self-concept measures were statistically significant.

Other notes

The authors estimated it took about 10 minutes to complete the PSQ.

Their first study included people ages 12 to 36 (n = 506). In the second study, ages were 15 to 65 (= 1135).

Availability

The PSQ items can be found in the Goñi et al. (2011) article (see the reference below). The 18-items can be found in Table 1 on page 512. Notice the 4-items eliminated from the 22 item measure used in the first study.

Self-Concept is the focal dimension of S in the SCOPES model of functioning.

Academic Self-Efficacy Scale for Students

 

High School Students/ Bing images Free to use

The ASESS (Academic Self-Efficacy for Students) is designed to measure students’ opinions about their ability to perform well on academic tasks. 

High scoring students earn better grades and are more persistent compared to low scoring students. Those with high scores also use more effective cognitive strategies, organize their time more efficiently, and are better at self-regulation.

     [Read more about self-efficacy theory.]

Format

The 11-items are rated on a 1 to 5 basis from “No Confidence at all” to “Complete Confidence.”

Instructions

The instructions on the scale ask the students: “How much confidence do you have that you can successfully...”

Sample Items

1. Finish homework assignments by deadlines?

8. Remember information presented in class and textbooks?

Availability

When I wrote this post, the scale could be found at this link:  http://academics.ivc.edu/success/Documents/Self%20Regulation%20Assesment.pdf

The scale is reported as an adaptation from Zimmerman et al. (1992) and Chemers et al. (2001).

Academic Self-Efficacy Scale ASE

 

Overview

The Academic Self-Efficacy Scale is an application of Self-Efficacy Theory to examine the relationship between self-efficacy and academic performance using 8-items rated on a 7-point scale.

The work of Chemers et al. (2001) has been widely cited.

Format

The 8-items are rated on a 7-point Likert-type scale ranging from 1 = Very Untrue to 7 = Very True.

Sample Items

2. I know how to take notes.

6. I usually do very well in school and at academic tasks.

 Reliability, Validity, and Other Research notes

In the article describing the development and use of the ASE, the authors observed: “As predicted, academic self-efficacy was significantly and directly related to academic expectations and academic performance.” (Chemers et al., 2001, p. 61)

 Sutton etal. (2011) reported alpha of .83 in their study of academic self-esteem and personal strengths. ASE was highly positively correlated with ACT scores (.24) and GPA (.39).

An Arabic version of the ASE developed by Almohazie (2018) revealed Cronbach’s alphas of .935 for men and .918 for women. The average item mean was 5.38 ( SD  = 1.14).

New General Self-Efficacy Scale

 

Bing Images/free to share and use

General Self-Efficacy refers to a trait in contrast to more specific dimensions of self-efficacy. The New General Self-Efficacy Scale (NGSES) was developed by Chen et al. (2001). The scale consists of 8-items.

The assessment of Self-Efficacy may be relevant in psychotherapy, career planning, and organizational psychology. Read more about Self-Efficacy Theory.

 

Instructions

Using a 5-point rating scale (1= strongly disagree; 3 = neither agree nor disagree; 5 = strongly agree), respondents show how much they agree with eight statements, such as “Even when things are tough, I can perform quite well.” Researchers then calculate a score for each respondent by taking the average of their ratings.

Sample items

  1. I will be able to achieve most of the goals that I set for myself.
  2. When facing difficult tasks, I am certain that I will accomplish them.

Reliability

The authors reported alpha = .86 and .90 (two times) in study 2 (See Chen et al., 2012).

Validity

The authors reported correlations with several measures in Table 1 (p. 72). The SGSE was positively correlated with the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (r = .75)

Experiences in Close Relationships-Relational Structures

 

Experiences in Close Relationships-Relational Structures

 

The ECR-RS is a measure of adult attachment that includes four 9-item subscales for mother, father, romantic partner, and best friend attachment (Fraley et al., 2011a). Statements on the ECR-RS are rated on a 7-point scale (1 = strongly disagree; 7 = strongly agree).

 

Sample items from the ECR-RS

 

I find it easy to depend on this person.

I often worry that this person doesn't really care for me.

 

Reliability values

 

“In our research, the ECR-RS has proven to be quite useful. The test-retest reliability (over 30 days) of the individual scales are approximately .65 for the domain of romantic relationships (including individuals who experienced breakups during the 30-day period) and .80 in the parental domain.” (Chris-Fraley, n.d.)

 

Scale alpha values exceed .90 for each scale, according to Chris-Fraley.

 

Finding the ECR-RS Questionnaire,

Chris-Fraley has a copy of the scale with references and scoring information at the Illinois lab site. http://labs.psychology.illinois.edu/~rcfraley/measures/relstructures.htm

See also the 2011a reference below.
