Scoring and Interpreting the Rating Scale


Write the following letter(s) next to each item:


B (items1, 3, 7, 11, 15, 17, and 19)


C (items 2, 5, 8, 12, 16, 18, and 20)


H (items 2, 4, 6, 9, 10, 13, and 14)


(Item #2 will have both a C and an H next to it.)


Now add up the total of your ratings for all the Bs, Cs, and Hs. You should have three totals between 7 and 49.


Each of the three totals tells you the extent of your agreement with one of the models we will be studying in class. In case you are unsure, the B-items are ideas and methods associated with behaviorism, the C-items with cognitivism, and the H-items with humanism.
