Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory

The Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventories (CSEI) have been taken by thousands of individuals. Findings from the two forms (Adult Form, CSEI-AD; and School Form, CSEI-SC) demonstrate the relationship of academic achievement to personal satisfaction in school and adult life. Normative data is available on both the Adult and School forms. The CSEI can be used for individual diagnosis, classroom screening and pre-post evaluation.
