DESCRIPTION OF THE TOOL:
Aggression scale is designed by Dr. Guru Pyari Mathur (Raebareli) and Dr. Raj Kumari Bhatnagar(Agra) and is issued by Rakhi Prakashan. The test measures the aggression level of individuals above the age of 14 years on a five pointer scale. This test was administered on 300 males and females each to establish its reliability and validity. The validity was found out to be 80 in males and 78 in females. The reliability of the scale is 88 in males and 81 in females. The scoring was divided on two bases: positive statements and negative statements. The scoring for positive statements was obtained by following the pattern of 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and that for negative statements was obtained by following the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 pattern. The individual’s score is measured along three categories: high, average and low level of aggression and interpretation is made based on the category the individual falls in.
