Trustworthiness Scale for Parents

This tool was developed by Child Trends for the Templeton Foundation, as part of the Flourishing Children Project. It includes five items designed for parents to rate their teenagers' trustworthiness/integrity. Trustworthiness is demonstrated when one can be counted on to be truthful and to consistently keep commitments over time and to  act with integrity (i.e., keeping to principles even when it's difficult to do so, engaging in ethical behavior, and respecting others' privacy and property).

Scoring / Benchmarking
You may calculate a total score by associating the following numeric values with the answer options: None of the time=0; A little of the time=1; Some of the time=2; Most of the time=3; All of the time=4. The maximum score for this scale equals 20. Total scores allow for quick overviews of how individuals are doing, as well as easy comparisons in aggregate between pre- and post-tests.
Background / Quality
This scale has been tested with a nationally representative sample of parents. It has been found to have excellent reliability (alpha=.89).
