Assessed the psychometric qualities of R. H. Deluty"s (see record 1980-02381-001) Children"s Action Tendency Scale (CATS) and L. Michelson and R. Wood"s (1982) Children"s Assertive Behavior Scale (CABS) with 157 Dutch children (aged 8 yrs 9 mo-13 yrs 3 mo). Both instruments were designed to assess self-reported responses to interpersonal situations, obtaining aggressive, assertive, and submissive scores. Acceptable psychometric properties were obtained for the 2 scales, except for the assertive scale of the CATS. The ability of both measures to discriminate between submissiveness and assertiveness was low. Gender differences regarding relations between the CATS and CABS and measures of perceived competence and social desirability are offered as a possible explanation for the relative failure of the 2 scales to separate submissive and assertive behavior
