Children RS Questionnaire

These measures are available to the public. If you intend to use any of them, please be sure to read the available literature or contact a member of our lab for information on the psychometric properties of the measure.

This is a 12 (twelve) item questionnaire that works with 3rd to 8th graders. Included in this questionnaire are 6 (six) items that, when aggregated, predict teacher reports of interpersonal sensitivity and interpersonal difficulties. If you intend to use this measure, we suggest that you read the following paper: Ayduk, O., Mendoza-Denton, R., Mischel, W., Downey, G., Peake, P. K., & Rodriguez, M. (2000). Regulating the interpersonal self: Strategic self-regulation for coping with rejection sensitivity. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 79, 776-792.

How to score:

  1. Each item in the RSQ-Children's includes two questions.
  2. To obtain a score for each item, multiply scores on each question. The score for each question is simply the chosen number.
  3. To obtain a total score, average the scores for all the items.
