Quick Reference

An instrument comprising three forms designed to measure self-esteem: two forms for schoolchildren and an adult form, all items having dichotomous response categories (Like me or Unlike me).

The scales were constructed by the US psychologist Stanley Coopersmith (1926–79), and the original version was published in Coopersmith's book Antecedents of Self-Esteem (1967). CSEI abbrev.
