The stability and internal consistency of Spence and Helmreichs sex- role scales, the Attitudes toward Women Scale AWS and Personal Attributes Questionnaire PAQ, are reported. An entire first-year class of 1,007 male and 78 female cadets at the U.S. Military Academy were given a battery of psychological tests before and after cadet basic training a 2 12-month period. The AWS and PAQ proved to be highly reliable, comparable to other frequently used psychological tests. This psychometric information encourages researchers to make further use of these sex-role scales.
