Title: 
The development of a new measure of pupils' self-esteem in Singapore secondary schools
Authors:

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.
