The Tennessee Self-Concept Scale is one of the most popular measures of self-concept in children, adolescents and adults, offers norms down to age 7 years, simplified 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:
- Total Self-Concept
- Faking Good
- Response Distribution
Standardised on a nationwide sample of more than 3,000 people from ages 7 to 90 years, 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 may 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 ages 13 years and older. The Child Form, written at a second-grade level, can be used with ages 7 to 14 years.
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 may 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 studies and recommendations regarding therapeutic intervention.
The TSCS:2 may also be computer scored, via CD. The report generated has been designed for clarity and ease of use.
