Looking for Scales for new book: Measurement Instruments for Service Learning Students

Posted by on April 5, 2002

The American Psychological Association will publish the book
"Measurement Instruments for Service Learning: Students." The book,
which is focused only on students, will present scales in the following
areas: self and self-concept, moral development, motives and values,
student development, attitudes (including civic attitudes), and critical
thinking (the book will not include scales that assess academic
performance or course satisfaction).

The book responds to the need that researchers have for tools to use in
assessment, program evaluation, and research. The entries in the volume
will provides a description of the construct being measured, its source,
the scale (or sample items), and information about the psychometric
properties of the scale (reliability, convergent validity, discriminant
validity, factor structure).

They are in the final stages of selecting scales for inclusion. If you
have a scale that you feel should be considered or you would like to
recommend a scale that you have used, please send information about the
scale (preferably the scale and publications that contain information
about the construct validity of the scale) to:
