Report of a Measure of Academic Entitlement
Dennis L. Jackson, Jill A. Singleton-Jackson, Marc P. Frey

There have been at least three attempts to measure academic entitlement. The definitions used to construct these measures vary somewhat and in some instances definitions were not offered by authors. In the current study, we review the existing measures and definitions and offer a tentative definition of academic entitlement. We also report on an ongoing effort to develop a measure of academic entitlement, providing preliminary results for a two-factor and four-factor version of the measure and provide correlation coefficients between academic entitlement and learning orientation styles. We recommend that since academic entitlement is a relatively new construct with attempts to measure the construct still in their infancy, frequent communication of efforts to define and measure academic entitlement should be the norm.
