Abstract
Measures of Personality and Social Psychological Constructs provides a systematic standardized evaluation of approximately 100 scales in 25 areas. Each chapter is written by an expert in the respective area and includes: the variable scale measures, a description of the scale, reliability & validity information, and examples from the scale. In addition, there will be a discussion of which scales are best used for what purpose and population. Relative to the earlier book, this work will cover twice as many areas (25 relative to 12), and focus only on the most promising scales used for that area, rather than trying to be comprehensive in covering all scales. Coverage will be expanded per scale covered, and more overall topics covered, but with fewer scales covered per topic.
