    Abstract

    The Beck Depression Inventory was administered, along with measures of anxiety, locus of control, and self-concept, to 211 undergraduates at a major southern institution to test for concurrent validity. Correlations of scores on Beck's scale with other scores provide additional support for Beck's scale as a valid measure of depression.
