Your score on the Rosenberg self-esteem scale is...
Scores are calculated as follows :
For items 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7:
- SA (strongly agree) = 3
- A (agree) = 2
- D (disagree) = 1
- SD (strongly disagree) = 0
For items 3, 5, 8, 9, and 10 (which are reversed in valence):
- SA (strongly agree) = 0
- A (agree) = 1
- D (disagree) = 2
- SD (strongly disagree) = 3
The scale ranges from 0-30. Scores between 15 and 25 are within normal range; scores below 15 suggest low self-esteem.
