Stages of Concern – SPSS Syntax

The Stages of Concern Questionnaire (SoCQ) is a tool to determine where an individual is in the seven stages of concern. The 35 items and eight point Likert scale questionnaire is designed to assess the concerns of the individual/group during implementation of an innovation. The seven stages of concern are:

Stage 0 (Unconcerned)
Stage 1 (Informational)
Stage 2 (Personal)
Stage 3 (Management)
Stage 4 (Consequence)
Stage 5 (Collaboration)
Stage 6 (Refocusing)
By locating teachers’ intense stages of concern (peak stage concern) with an innovation, facilitators can develop need–specific professional development and training.
