The “Test”

The Mentor Scale on the following pages lists thirty-nine sentence stems, each with two possible endings. Keeping your work environment in mind, quickly review each item and circle the letter of the ending that best completes the sentence. Read each item carefully, but choose your response quickly. Instruments like this tend to be more accurate if you go with your immediate reaction rather than pondering your choice. Do not leave items blank. You will find some items in which neither choice is perfectly accurate. Select the one that seems better. After completing the inventory, proceed to the scoring form.
