Abstract

Mathematical formulae were devised for the purpose of generating continuous measures of the four identity statuses from measures of exploration and commitment. The formulae were consistent with the conceptual definitions of the statuses. They were found to be effective both in terms of generating continuous measures of the statuses and in terms of deriving status assignments.
