Social Judgement Scale
Please read out each of the following situational discriptions to the child and summarise the answers, in about 20 to 25 words, on the lines below each item. The main purpose of the questions is to examine the reasoning underlying a child's statement that an action was right or wrong. Do not amplify in any way or discuss the item before noting the answers, although the question of 'why' the child has made his or her judgement may be pursued with subsidiary questions. Please do not offer your views to the child on the social imperatives involved here, until all the items have been answered.

Social Judgement Scale

Please read out each of the following situational discriptions to the child and summarise the answers, in about 20 to 25 words, on the lines below each item. The main purpose of the questions is to examine the reasoning underlying a child's statement that an action was right or wrong. Do not amplify in any way or discuss the item before noting the answers, although the question of 'why' the child has made his or her judgement may be pursued with subsidiary questions. Please do not offer your views to the child on the social imperatives involved here, until all the items have been answered.
