Is there a cost associated with this tool?

This is an observation tool for teachers. This version is calibrated for second and third grade.  This scale is a subset of a larger civic responsibility measurement scale.

It is designed to be administered over time to observe progress in the extent to which children demonstrate concern for others (empathy). For example, it would be appropriate to use the scale at the start of the school year, at the start of the second school grading period, and at the end of the school year.
