19 Are you a responsible person? - Behavioural intent questions on personal responsibility


As a summary to this unit, students are asked a number of questions about their behaviour and their behavioural intent. Behavioural intent indications may be good motivators to produce desired behaviour in the future.

What the teacher does

1. Decide how to teach this activity.

a) Provide an activity sheet for each student and have them do the activity individually.

b) Read out each question and have students write 3 for yes (agree); 1 for uncertain and 0 for no (disagree). Only one activity sheet needed.

c) Write the questions on the board and have students do the activity individually (only one activity sheet needed).

2. Students should total their score and refer to their “Responsibility score”.


= 3 points


= 1 point


= 0 point

Responsibility score

33 - 36 points

Very responsible

30 - 33 points


27 - 29 points

Somewhat responsible

24 - 26 points

Not very responsible

0-24 points

You are taking risks!

Maybe you should think again.

Additional preparation

Introduce this activity by telling the students that this activity is private (confidential) and scores will not be seen by the teacher or other students (unless revealed by the student).
