Normative Data

Normative Data

The SMALSI consists of the Child Form (for ages 8 to 12) and the Teen Form (for ages 13 to 18). Both forms pose questions with a four-point response scale, ranging from “Never” to “Almost Always.” The scales for both forms fall into two groups: Student Strengths and Student Liabilities. Scores from the Strengths scale assess the student’s ability to study, take notes, read, write, take tests, and manage time effectively. In contrast, scores from the Liabilities scale focus on the student’s low academic motivation, anxiety in test situations, and concentration difficulties.

The SMALSI can be scored either by hand or computer. Handscoring requires the respondent to complete either the Child Form or the Teen Form. Results are then recorded onto the corresponding Profile Sheet. Alternatively, computer scoring involves onscreen completion of the test and recording of responses. An audio CD is available for those who have difficulties with reading. Respondents can complete the SMALSI by listening to test items rather than reading them.

The SMALSI was developed using a normative sample of 2,921 students—1,821 students between the ages of 8 and 12 (Child Form), and 1,100 students between the ages of 13 and 18 (Teen Form). The majority of these students attended public schools and ranged in ethnicity, gender, age and grade. T-scores for both SMALSI forms were developed based on the data provided by these participants.
