Causal Dimension Scale - II (CDS-II)

This is a revision of the original Casual Dimension Scale (CDS; Russell, 1982) and takes into consideration the participant as an active agent in the attribution process. The CDS-II assesses causal attributions along four dimensions: Locus of Causality, Stability, Personal Control, and External Control.
