Majkowicz, Miko?aj,Zdun-Ry?ewska, Agata,Landowski, Jerzy,de Walden-Ga?uszko, Krystyna
Psychiatria Polska , 2013,
Abstract: Aim. The aim of this study was to adapt the Quality of Life in Depression Scale to Polish conditions. The scale determines the quality of life, defined in terms of the concept of needs, and focuses on patients with depressive disorders. Since its basic version has been developed, the tool was adapted in many countries, also outside Europe.Method. The adaptation procedure included the translation of the original version into Polish, followed by the English retranslation, and was performed by four independent, qualified translators. The final Polish version was verified during a pilot study.Results. This pilot study confirmed high reliability of the Polish version of Quality of Life in Depression Scale.Conclusion. The Quality of Life in Depression Scale (QLDS) can be considered an interesting tool in view of its broad theoretical background, and a simple procedure to complete during a clinical evaluation. The use of a specialist translation procedure, and the results of our pilot study suggest that the QLDS can be used in further research, both when evaluating a clinical population and when dealing with individual patients.
Organization-based self-esteem scale – adaptation in an international context  [PDF]
Kanning, U. P.,Hill, A.
Journal of Business and Media Psychology , 2012,
Abstract: We report on a study in which the English-language original of a scale on the measurement of organization-based self-esteem was adapted infive further languages (German, Polish, Hungarian, Spanish, Malay) and validated. The employees of an international company were surveyedin seven countries (USA, Canada, Germany, Poland, Spain, Hungary and Malaysia). For purposes of validation, the job satisfaction, the selfratedjob performance and the support of the employees in implementing the company values (commitment) were used. The results show thatthe adaptation proceeded successfully. In all cases, a reliable scale emerges, which correlates positively with the validity criteria.
A Third Model of Self-Construal: The Metapersonal Self  [PDF]
Teresa L. DeCicco,Mirella L. Stroink
International Journal of Transpersonal Studies , 2007,
Abstract: This research adds a third model and measure of self-construal to the current psychological literature: the metapersonal self-construal. This model extends previous theory and research, which has established two self-construal orientations to date: the independent and interdependent self-construal. The research presents a series of studies investigating the theoretical and psychometric properties of the third model and measure. Study 1 produced a valid and reliable 10-item self-report scale of the metapersonal self. Study 2 determined the scale to be low in social desirability bias. Studies 3 and 4 examined the convergent and discriminant validity of the three self-construal scales. Investigations among several variables showed that three unique but related self-construal constructs exist and evidence supports the theoretical underpinnings of each construct.

International Journal of Transpersonal Studies , 2010,
Abstract: This study aims to further investigate the convergent validity of the recently-proposed metapersonal model and measure of self-construal, and to emphasize the discriminant validity of the metapersonal self-construal as a distinct construct, capturing a unique aspectof self-construal separate from either interdependent or independent aspects. The study looked at two questions: (1) Does the metapersonal self-construal predict higher emotional intelligence? (2) Do those who have higher metapersonal self-construal scores also reportgreater well-being? A group of 212 undergraduate students was assessed using a self-construal scale that includes the new measure of metapersonal self-construal, along with scales measuring emotional intelligence and well-being. The metapersonal self-construal predictedhigher emotional intelligence scores and greater well-being than either the independent or interdependent self-construals.

Abstract: Purpose of this study is to adapt Academic Self-efficacy Scale into Turkish, determine validity and reliability of the scale developed by Morgan and Jinks (2003). Because of the correlation between the marks obtained from the English and Turkish Forms of the scale is .95, both of these forms were accepted as equivalent. Working group of the study included 380 students who were attending 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades of four different primary schools in three counties of Ankara. Structural validity of the scale determined through exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. As a result of exploratory factor analysis, it was seen that scale has three factor structure as it was original, but the third factor formed different factor. Factors were ability, context, and educational quality. Scale's reliability of Turkish form was determined as .80 with repetition and through Cronbach alfa inner reliability technique as .82.
Self-Construal and Subjective Wellbeing in Two Ethnic Communities in Singapore  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2011.22011
Abstract: The study reported here addressed two questions concerning the applicability to other collectivist cultures of a model developed on the basis of socially defined self-construals and their consequences for subjective wellbeing (Kwan, Bond, & Singelis, 1997). In contrast to the social centrality of the Singaporean Chinese, Islam enjoys centrality in the Malay community. Is subjective well-being in these two cultures attributable to independent or interdependent self-construal? Do parallel paths to subjective wellbeing originate from these two forms of self-construal? Are the respective mediators, self-esteem and relationship harmony, functioning in the same way in these different communities? Two hundred and eighty-six participants (121 Malays, including 49 females and 72 males, and 165 Chinese, including 62 males and 103 females, average age, 18.52) were drawn from three tertiary technical training institutes in Singapore. Independent and interdependent self-construal, Rosenberg’s Self-esteem Scale (SE), the Relationship Harmony Scale (RH) (Kwan, et al. 1997) and the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SL) (Diener, Emmons. Larsen, & Griffins, 1985) were administered to test the model. For the Chinese, the best-fit model required a path between the two forms of self-construal, confirming their overlapping nature. For the Malays, a radically different model fits the data: relationship harmony no longer functions as a mediator but as an independent contributor in its own right. These results raise questions about the meaning and consequences of socially defined self-construal in different collectivist cultures, and the path between ¬the self and subjective wellbeing.

This study investigated the reliability and validity of the Chinese version of the Relational-Inter- dependent Self-Construal Scale (RISCS). The effective participants of this study included 192 University students from Lu Zhou Medical College and 237 University students from SouthwesternUniversity. New model were fit. Internal consistency reliability coefficient of the scale was 0.80. The relationship between RISCS and independence self, interdependent self, short version of independent self, interdependent self were related significantly. And then, the relationship between RISCS and self-confidence was calculated as 0.33. RISCS and dominance, liveliness, persistence, openness to change, emotional reasoning, mental health, in- troverted and outgoing of 16PF were significantly correlated. The difference of sex was significant (t = 5.47, p < 0.001). The results show that this scale is a reliable and valid instrument.

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.513167
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to introduce self-esteem scale associated with the culture of Vietnam. In essence, this is the process of cross-cultural adaptation of self-esteem scales that colleagues from the University of Toulouse II-Le Mirail (French Republic) establish for participant groups who are Vietnam minors. Results factor analysis with SPSS and Lisrel software has allowed us to obtain the scale consisting of 21 items, focusing for 4 contents: family self, social self, physical self, and academic self. Comparing with the study that the Vietnamese colleagues have conducted, we found that the research results have confirmed the importance of self of family to participant groups who are Vietnam minors, whereas emotional self and future self do not get results possible. We believe that Vietnam culture, especially Confucianism and Buddhism may explain the result of this research.
Preliminary studies of adaptation of Self- efficacy Scale for Sources of Mathematics.

Revista Argentina de Ciencias del Comportamiento , 2011,
Abstract: In the field of educational psychologically the construct of self-efficacy has received special attention. It has been shown that those students who trust in their own abilities get better academic performance. However, few studies analyze the sources of self-efficacy. Self-efficacy believes are developed according to how people interpret information coming from four different sources: experience skills, vicarious learning, social persuasion, and physiological states. Recently, Usher & Pajares (2009 developed an instrument to assess sources of self-efficacy in Math. The goal of the present work was to evaluate psychometric properties of this scale in a local sample of adolescents from 13 to 15 years old. Preliminary results supported the use of this measure as an adequate alternative to assess self-efficacy in Math. However, more studies are needed in order to obtain a measure more contextualized to the educational system of local students.
