Specific Intellectual Humility Scale (SIHS)- Review

 


Assessment name: Specific Intellectual Humility Scale (SIHS)

Scale overview: The Specific Intellectual Humility Scale (SIHS) is a nine-item self-report measure of humility in a specific domain, topic, or area of interest such as politics or religion.

Authors: Rick H. Hoyle and others (2016)

Response Type: Participants rate each item on a five-point scale of degree of how much the item applies to them. The anchor points range from not at all like me to very much like me.

Scale items: Each item has a blank to be filled in by the researchers who wish to assess a specific area of humility.

 Examples

   My views about _____ are just as like to be wrong as other views.

   When it comes to my views about _____ I may be overlooking evidence.

Psychometric properties

Coefficient alpha values were high in several studies for the 9-item version.

Coefficient alphas ranged from .77 to .86 for an abbreviated 3-item version.

CFA evidence supported a single factor for the construct.

The authors reported reasonable correlations with other measures providing early support for validity.

Correlations between SIHS and a measure of general intellectual humility ranged from .24 to .63 depending on the topic in one study.

 

Availability: The full set of nine items can be found in Table 1 of the article by Rick H. Hoyle et al. (2016).

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 (6 items) 2. Autonomy (4 items) 3. Honesty (3 items) 4. Emotional self-concept (5 items)  👉 [ 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 s

Student Self-Efficacy

  Assessment name:  STUDENT SELF-EFFICACY SCALE * Note. This post has been updated to provide an available measure of student self-efficacy. ———- Scale overview:  The  student self-efficacy scale i s a 10-item measure of self-efficacy. It was developed using data from university nursing students in the United States. Authors: Melodie Rowbotham and Gerdamarie Schmitz Response Type:  A four-choice rating scale as follows: 1 = not at all true 2 = hardly true 3 = moderately true 4 = exactly true   Self-efficacy is the perception that a person can act in a way to achieve a desired goal.  Scale items There are 10 items.

If I try hard enough, I can obtain the academic goals I desire.   Psychometric properties The authors reported that their sample scores ranged from 25 to 40 with a scale mean of 34.23 ( SD  = 3.80. Internal consistency was high at alpha = .84. The authors reported the results of a principal compon

  Scale name: Mathematics Self-Efficacy and Anxiety Questionnaire (MSEAQ) Scale overview: The Mathematics Self-Efficacy and Anxiety Questionnaire (MSEAQ) is a 29-item self-report measure of both mathematics self-efficacy and mathematics anxiety.

I feel confident enough to ask questions  in my mathematics class. 6. I worry that I will not be able to get a  good grade in my mathematics course.   Subscales and basic statistics for the MSEAQ       Self-Efficacy M = 44.11, SD = 10.78, alpha = .93       Anxiety M = 46.47, SD = 12.61, alpha = .93       Total Scale M = 90.58, SD = 22.78, alpha = .96 Reliability: See the Cronbach’s alpha levels reported above. Validity: There were significant positive correlations with similar measures. The results of a Fa
