Tennessee Self-Concept Scale - Second Edition (TSCS-2)

The Tennessee Self-Concept Scale - Second Edition (TSCS-2) measures self-concept in children, adolescents and adults. It provides 15 scores to show how respondents see themselves in school or work settings. There are separate child and adult forms available. The child form provides norms for children aged 7 to 14 years and the adult form can be used with individuals aged 13 and above. The TSCS-2 can be administered with individuals or groups and administration takes 10-20 minutes.

The first 20 items on each form serve as a Short-Form version providing a quick summary of self-concept. Additionally, the scoring procedures have been simplified in the second edition of the TSCS, taking just 10 minutes to hand-score.
