Six-Factor Self-Concept Scale (SFSCS)



Scale name: Six-Factor Self-Concept Scale (SFSCS)

Scale overview

The SFSCS is a 36-item self-report measure of self-concept, which organizes responses into six dimensions.

 Author(s): Professor Jane E. Stake

Items = 36

Response Type

The SFSCS is a 7-point rating scale. The labels for the points are as follows: never or almost never true of me ( 1 ), usually not true of me (2), sometimes but infrequently true of me (3), occasionally true of me (4), often true of me (5), usually true of me (6), and always or almost always true of me (7).

Subscales = 6

L = Likeability

T = Task Accomplishment

P = Power

V = Vulnerability

G = Gifted

M = Moral

 

Sample items

1 Fun to be with.

15 Sociable.

Reliability

Six week, test-retest values ranged from .68 to .85 and .97 for composite scores.

Coefficient alpha values ranged from .76 to .86 for college adults and .64 to .83 for noncollege adults (see the 1994 article for details).

 

Validity

The six factors were identified using Exploratory Factor Analysis followed by Confirmatory Factor Analysis.
