Title: The development of a new measure of pupils' self-esteem in Singapore secondary schools
Authors: Lui, Elena Hah Wah

Citation: Singapore Journal of Education, 9(1), 51-54
Abstract: This article is a brief account of the development of a new measure of pupils' selfesteem for use in Singapore's secondary schools. The new measure named "Self- Esteem Checklist" (SEC), is a self-reporting instrument comprising 25 items grouped under 4 subscales. It has been pilot tested twice (in September 1986 and March 1987)' before the main study was conducted in May, 1987. The findings of the second pilot study and main study yield support to the validity and reliability of the SEC, and its correlation with pupils' academic achievement. This instrument, when used with proper guidance, may facilitate teacher-counsellors' understanding of pupils' self-esteem, and help pupils know more about themselves, in the pastoral care as well as career guidance programmes.
