Lewis, C. A., Cruise, S. M., Mc Guckin, C., & Francis, L. J. ‘Temporal stability of the Francis Scale of attitude toward Christianity among 9- to 11-year old English children: test-retest data over six weeks’ in Social Behavior and Personality, 34, (9), 2006, pp 1081 - 1086

Recently two studies have reported on the test-retest reliability of the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity; however, these studies were limited to samples of university students. The present study examined the temporal stability of both the 24- and 7-item versions of the junior version of the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity over a six-week period among a sample of 58 English children aged between 9 and 11 years old. Data demonstrated that stability across the two administrations was very high for both the 24- (r=.74) and 7-item (r=.67) versions, and there was no significant change between Time 1 and Time 2 for either version. These data support the short-term test-retest reliability of both the 24- and 7-item versions of the junior version of the Francis Scale of Attitude toward Christianity among children.
