Study the following descriptions of two tests and answer the questions that follow the descriptions.

Test A: 40 items

Description: Measure of self-esteem

Scales: Total Score, General Self-Esteem, Social Self-Esteem, Personal Self-Esteem

Reliability: Test-retest r = .81; coefficient alphas for the Total Score, General Self-Esteem, Social Self-Esteem, Personal Self-Esteem scales are .75, .78, .57, and .72, respectively.

Validity: Content-developed construct definitions for self-esteem, developed table of specifications, wrote items covering all content areas, used experts to evaluate items. Convergent—correlated with Coopersmith’s Self-Esteem Inventory r = .41. Discriminant—correlated with Beck Depression Inventory r =.05. Factor analysis revealed that the three subscales (General Self-Esteem, Social Self-Esteem, and Personal Self-Esteem) are dimensions of self-esteem. Homogeneity—correlations between the scales indicate that the General scale correlated with the Social Scale at .67, the Personal scale at .79, and the Total scale at .89.

Scales: Global self-esteem, competence, lovability, likeability, self-control, personal power, moral self-approval, body appearance, body functioning, identity integration, and defensive self-enhancement.

Reliability: Test-retest for each scale ranges from .65 to .71. Coefficient alphas range on each scale from .71 to .77.

Validity: Content—based on a three-level hierarchical model of self-esteem. Convergent—correlated with the Self-Concept and Motivation Inventory r = .25 and with the Eysenck Personality inventory r = .45. Discriminant—correlated with Hamilton Depression Inventory r = .19.
