Student-Life Stress Inventory
The reliability of the Student-Life Stress Inventory of B. M. Gadzella (1991) was studied. The inventory consists of 51 items listed in 9 sections indicating different types of stressors (frustrations, conflicts, pressures, changes, and self-imposed stressors) and reactions to the stressors (physiological, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive) as perceived by university students. Ninety-five state university students (38 males and 57 females) responded to the inventory twice within 12 days and rated each item by using a 5-point Likert scale. Students' responses were analyzed using the Pearson product moment correlation (test-retest) and Cronbach's alpha, the internal consistency correlation. All correlations were statistically significant, indicating that the inventory is highly reliable. Tables 1 and 2 present the inventory and the answer sheet. Tables 3 and 4 show correlations between responses for stress level groups. Table 5 illustrates internal consistency findings. (Author/SLD)

- "Results were then printed and recorded. PSYCHOLOGICAL STRESS Participants were assessed in terms of their psychological stress level by using self-administered Perceived Stress Score (PSS) (Cohen et al. 1983) and Student-Life Stress Inventory (SSI) (Gadzella 1994) questionnaires during pre and post-intervention. PSS is a most common psychological instrument used in measuring perceived stress and Malay version of PSS was used in this study. "

ABSTRACT: This article presents a method for imposing a dichotomous incidence variable, possibly a demographic variable, on the weighting of items in a set of successive-categories (rating) data in a dual scaling analysis. The original matrix of rating data is augmented with the “criterion” item and “centered” between two numbers that represent the two criterion groups, so this item determines one of the initial solutions of the dual scaling analysis. The procedure is discussed with both practical guidelines for its use and interpretation of results. Examples of application involve both fabricated and real data.
