APPENDIX B-2: SOCIAL SUPPORT SCALE FOR CHILDREN

Social Support Scale for Children (SSSC, Harter, 1985)

PEOPLE IN MY LIFE

Code: _____ INSTRUCTIONS: I have some sentences here. As you can see at the top of your sheet it says “People in my life.” I am interested in several kinds of people in your life. These included your friends and your parents or those people who take care of you. This is not a test, so there is no right or wrong answer. Since you are all different from one another, each of you will be putting down something different. So let me explain how this will be done. There is an example of a sentence marked (a). I will read it out loud and you follow along with me. All of these sentences begin with the word “Some,” and this is referring to you and not another kid. What I want you to think about is whether this sentence is Untrue of you, Somewhat untrue of you, Somewhat true of you, or, True of you. After you decide which answer you want, place a circle around it. You can only circle one answer, not more than one (Read sentence aloud and ask participants to take time and think about their response). So that was just for practice, now continue and answer the remaining sentences on your own. Remember for each sentence, you only place a circle once, the one you think best describes you.

Example: (a) Some kids like to be at school more than at home.

APPENDIX B-3: SELF-PERCEPTION PROFILE FOR ADOLESCENTS

Self-Perception Profile for Adolescents (SPPA, Harter, 1988) What I Am Like Code: _____ INSTRUCTIONS: I have some sentences here. As s you can see at the top of your sheet it says “What I am like.” I am interested in what each of you is like, or, what kind of a person you are. This is not a test, so there are is no right or wrong answer. Since you are all different from one another, each of you will be putting down something different. So let me explain how this will be done. There is an example of a sentence marked (a). I will read it out loud and you follow along with me.

After you decide which answer you want, place a circle around it.

Example: (a) Some teenagers like listening to African music during their spare time.
