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 I will be able to achieve most of the goals that I set for myself. 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 C

Experiences in Close Relationships-Relational Structures

  SCALE NAME:   Experiences in Close Relationships-Relational Structures  (ECR-RS) AUTHORS : Fraley and others  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 Questionn

Attachment to God Scale

  The Attachment to God Scale (AGS ), like other attachment measures, includes scales for anxious and avoidant dimensions of attachment (Rowatt, 2002).  The 9-items are rated on a 7-point scale ranging from (1= strongly disagree ; 7 = strongly agree ).   Rowatt and Kirkpatrick (2002) found support for two dimensions of attachment to God and reported Alpha values of .92 for avoidance and .80 for anxious attachment (Rowatt & Kirkpatrick, 2002). If we think more positively, people who are low on anxious attachment to God would feel more secure. Likewise, people low on avoidant attachment to God would feel closer to God.   Sample items from the AGS   God seems to have little or no interest in my personal affairs. I have a warm relationship with God.   Where to find the AGS   See the Rowatt (2002) reference below.   Related Posts Attachment and Attachment Theory Attachment to God Attachment to God Inventory (AGI)     Resource Link for more tests:  A – Z

Perspective Taking and Empathic Concern Scales

 Davis developed a two dimensional approach to assess empathy with items measuring perspective taking and empathic concern. Each item is measured on a five-point scale from 0 to 4. The anchor labels are "Does not describe me well" to "Describes me well." Some items are reversed scored. There are 7 perspective taking items and 7 empathic concern items.

  It is no secret that the official position of the Catholic church opposes abortion. Many evangelicals groups also promote antiabortion positions. The subject of abortion continues to divide Americans as evident in survey data. This has been highlighted recently with the addition of Justice Barrett to the Supreme Court—a judge known for her prolife advocacy. In the summer, Justice Thomas famously attacked the court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade ( CNN ). In 2020, most Americans, the majority of whom are Christian, support abortion, though sizable percentages prefer laws that pose some limitations. Some important questions are not asked every year so, some data in the 2020 post refer to 2019, 2018, etc. The Gallup organization has looked at variations in opinions about abortion. This is helpful as advances in medical science make it possible for the unborn to live outside the womb at younger and younger ages. So, where do Americans stand on abortion? 79% support a legal abortion u

Biblical Literalism Scale

 T he Biblical Literalism Scale (BLS) is a 10-item scale found in an article by Andrew Village (2005). The content of the scale includes biblical events rated by participants on a scale as follows: ‘definitely happened’, ‘probably happened’, ‘not certain’, ‘probably a story’ or ‘definitely a story.’ High scores indicated a more literal belief. Findings : The survey sample consisted of 404 Christian participants. Scores ranged from 10 (all of the items were rated as stories) to 50 (all items rated as “definitely happened”). Old Testament items were rated as less literal than New Testament items. The average scores were highest in Evangelical churches and lowest in Anglo-Catholic churches. Correlation of scores with other variables BLS and frequent charismatic experience ( r = .51) (note a) BLS and frequent Bible reading ( r = .47) (note b) BLS and age ( r = -.17) BLS and education ( r = -.14) Women scored only slightly higher on (39.8) literalism than did men (3
