The Tennessee Self-Concept Scale, one of the most popular measures of self-concept in children, adolescents, and adults, offers norms down to age 7, easy scoring procedures, and guidance in interpreting scores and designing therapeutic interventions.
The test gives you 15 scores—including an Academic/Work Score that tells you how respondents see themselves in school and job settings:
Physical, Moral, Personal, Family, Social, Academic/Work
Total Self-Concept, Conflict
Supplementary Scores, Identity, Satisfaction, Behaviour
Validity Scores, Inconsistent Responding, Self-Criticism, Faking Good, Response Distribution
Standardized on a nationwide sample of more than 3,000 people from 7 to 90 years of age, the TSCS:2 is available in Adult and Child Forms. This downward extension allows you to use the test to evaluate self-concept across the life span.
Each form can be group or individually administered in just 10 to 20 minutes. The Adult Form, written at a third-grade reading level, is designed for individuals 13 years of age and older. The Child Form, written at a second-grade level, can be used with 7- through 14-year-olds.
The first 20 items on either version serve as a Short Form, which is convenient when you need only a quick summary of self-concept.
The TSCS:2 can be hand scored in just 10 minutes. Scoring procedures have been simplified considerably, and the Manual includes extensive interpretive guidance, as well as detailed case examples and recommendations regarding therapeutic intervention.
The TSCS:2 can also be computer scored via CD. The report generated by this scoring option has been designed for clarity and ease of use.
