The Attention Control Scale (ATTC) is a self-reportscale that is designed to measure two major components of attention (attention focusing and attention shifting). The ATTC consists of 20 items that are rated on a four-point likert scale from 1 (almost never) to 4 (always).
The ATTC consists of 20 items that are rated on a four-point likert scale from 1 (almost never) to 4 (always). The ATTC yiels two primary scales (attention shifting and attention focusing).
The ATTC yields one total scale and two subscales (attention shifting and attention focusing). Descriptions of the scales and item loadings are listed below. Scale scores are calculated as the sum of respective items. Bold items are reverse scored.
|SCALE NAME (ABBR.)||DESCRIPTION||ITEM LOADINGS|
|ATTC_TOT||Total||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20|
|ATTC_FOC||Attention Focusing||1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9|
|ATTC_SHIF||Attention Shifting||10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20|
