However, no studies have investigated the competence-affect separation for the Math and Verbal scales of the SDQ II in Chinese samples. The present study examines…

Rajlic, Gordana; Kwon, Jae Yung; Roded, Keren; Hubley, Anita M. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
In the current study, we present the development of the Global Self-Esteem (GSE) measure. The six-item GSE fulfills a need for a short unidimensional measure of global self-esteem conceptualized as "overall positive view of self." The construct is traditionally measured by the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSE); however, several important…
