About Piers-Harris Children’s Self-Concept Scale
Children’s self-esteem is assessed by using the Piers-Harris Children’s self-concept Scale (Piers & Harris, 1969), which was adapted into Turkish by Çataklı and Öner (1986-1987). The scale has 80 items and 6 subtests assessing the following areas:
This is a self-report inventory. There are 80 statements, such as “I lose my temper easily”, “I am a good person” to which children respond with “Yes/No” answers for each item, which are scored as 1 or 0. Higher scores indicate positive, lower scores indicate negative thoughts and feelings about self. It gives a total self-concept score and 6 cluster scores.
The test-retest reliability coefficients are between .72 and .91 for primary school children and .79 and .98 for junior high school children over one to seven-day intervals. Kuder Richardson reliability coefficient was found to be .87 for primary school children and .86 for junior high school children. The item-total correlation coefficients range between .09 and .50 (Çataklı, 1985). The construct or criterion validity of the Turkish Piers-Harris Self-Concept Scale has been studied through comparisons of the Test Anxiety Inventory and Parental Attitude Research Instrument and the research hypotheses were verified that the Piers-Harris Self-Concept Scale had construct validity (Çataklı and Öner 1986-1987)
