Adolescent Self-Regulatory Inventory (ASRI)

This questionnaire is used to measure self-regulation of teens.

It has items suitable for measuring both short-term and long-term self-regulation.  Short-term regulation items are: 2, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, and 22.  Long-term regulation items are: 3, 4, 12, 15, 20, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 36.  When evaluating the scale based on short-term or long-term, the following questions are excluded from scoring: 1, 5, 7, 10, 24, 32, 33, 34, and 35.

In this article, Moilanen describes testing the scale for short-term and long-term self-regulation factors. She provides the item numbers for short-term, long-term and excluded items in the Appendix, but the item numbers do not correctly correspond with the scale questions. The item numbers here have been adjusted to correspond to the scale questions.
Scoring / Benchmarking
Score items 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 20, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, and 36 as follows:

Not at all true for me = 1
Not very true for me = 2
Neither true nor untrue for me = 3
Somewhat true for me = 4
Really true for me = 5

Reverse score items 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 34, and 35 as follows:

Not at all true for me = 5
Not very true for me = 4
Neither true nor untrue for me = 3
Somewhat true for me = 2
Really true for me = 1

Add all the scores together. Higher scores indicate an ability to self-regulate.

Short-term vs. long-term self-regulation capacity can also be measured.

Short-term regulation items are: 2, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, and 22. Score as indicated above, and add together only these items. Higher scores indicate a greater ability to self-regulate in the short-term.

Long-term regulation items are: 3, 4, 12, 15, 20, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, and 36. Score as indicated above, and add together only these items. Higher scores indicate a greater ability to self-regulate in the long-term.

When evaluating the scale based on short-term or long-term, the following questions are excluded from scoring: 1, 5, 7, 10, 24, 32, 33, 34, and 35.
