The TSCS:2, one of the most popular measures of self-concept in adolescents and adults, can be used with children, too. Restandardized on a nationwide sample of more than 3,000 people ages 7-90 years, the TSCS:2 is available for both adults and children. 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 10-20 minutes. The Adult Form, written at a 3rd-grade reading level, is designed for individuals 13 years of age and older; the Child Form, written at a 2nd-grade reading level, can be used with individuals 7-14 years of age.

An additional scale, simplified scoring procedures for hand (AutoScore™) or computer scoring, and more guidance in interpreting scores and designing therapeutic interventions have been included in this edition. 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.
