Values are a central personality construct and the importance of studying them has been well established. To encourage researchers to integrate measures of values into their studies, brief and ultrabrief instruments were developed to recapture the 10 values measured by the 40-item Portrait Values Questionnaire (PVQ; Schwartz, 2003 Schwartz, S. H. (...

... Nevertheless, only a few studies have tested the modifications of the SWLS (Kjell & Diener, 2020;Vittersø, Biswas-Diener, & Diener, 2005). Generally, shortening the measurement instruments is desirable, especially in online surveys, because the overall length of the questionnaire significantly affects the response rate (Sandy, Gosling, Schwartz, & Koelkebeck, 2017). ...

The original version of the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) has been successfully tested in many studies, mainly using Classical Test Theory (CTT). Using Item Response Theory (IRT), this study examines psychometric properties of the original SWLS comprising five items, and its abbreviated versions and possible usage of a shorter response scale in a Czech data sample. IRT analysis was used to test the psychometric properties of the original SWLS, comprising five items rated on a 7-point Likert scale, and its results were compared the abbreviated version with four (SWLS-4) and three items (SWLS-3) and was also applied to evaluate the adequacy of the response scale's length. For the analysis, data from a representative sample of the Czech population older than 18 years were used (N = 1, 000). The results showed that all the three tested versions of the SWLS reached excellent psychometric properties, including unidimensionality, with slight differences between them. Further testing of the response scale's adequacy indicates that shortening the response categories from seven to five will be appropriate. The results of this Czech study show that abbreviated versions of the SWLS can be used interchangeably without impacting its psychometric qualities. The results also confirm that a shorter response scale is appropriate for the application. The findings from measurement invariance indicate that the SWLS allows meaningful comparisons in life satisfaction across gender and age.
... Hence, the two value dimensions measure a preference for Openness over Conservation and for Self-Transcendence over Self-Enhancement. Although a popular scale in values research, it lacks proper validation and psychometric properties are seldom given in previous research (e.g., mostly western samples, values seem to overlap/difficult to form, see Sandy et al., 2017). Further, research has shown the scale to be measurement invariant across 15 European nations only regarding openness and self-enhancement (Cieciuch et al., 2018). ...

Previous research on Schwartz’s theory of basic human values has mostly applied a variable-oriented approach . This study took a person-oriented approach and investigated how values co-occur and are manifested in individuals, that is, what kind of value profiles exist and how they differ in terms of subjective (i.e., life satisfaction) and social well-being (i.e., sense of belonging). In a sample of Finnish adolescents ( N = 973; women 59.6%; M age = 16.8, SD = .70), three value profiles emerged: personal-focus , growth-focus and self-protective , of which the personal-focus group scored highest on life satisfaction, the growth-focus group scored lowest on belonging to social media and the self-protective group scored highest on belonging to organizations. In all, subjective and social well-being were differently related to opposing values. The findings are discussed within a cultural and contextual framework.
... In addition, producers' perspectives relevant to calf care were explored by (1) how producers valued their male calves, (2) characteristics of calf care practices that producers prioritized (e.g., whether they are economical to implement; whether they promote calf health), and (3) which dairy industry stakeholder opinions were most influential, with a focus on how producers interacted with calf buyers. The personal values of producers were assessed using a series of questions measuring Schwartz's 10 basic values (conformity, tradition, security, power, achievement, hedonism, stimulation, self-direction, universalism, and benevolence), which have been validated across cultures for predicting decisions and behaviors (Sandy et al., 2017). Further analysis of producer values is being prepared in another manuscript. ...

The primary objective of this study was to compare male and female dairy calf management practices and evaluate risk factors associated with differences in care. Secondary objectives were to understand surplus calf transportation and marketing practices and investigate incentives to motivate calf care improvements. An online survey was distributed to all dairy producers in Ontario (n = 3,367) from November 2020 to March 2021 and Atlantic Canada (n = 557) from April to June 2021. Dairy producers were identified through provincial dairy associations and contacted via e-mail and social media. Descriptive statistics were computed, and a logistic regression model was created to evaluate factors associated with using discrepant feeding practices (i.e., fed less colostrum, fed colostrum later, or fed raw, unsalable milk) for male calves compared with females. The survey had a 7.4% response rate (n = 289/3,924) and was primarily filled out by farm owners (76%). Although colostrum and milk feeding practices were similar between male and female calves, male calves received less milk while still on the dairy farm of origin compared with females. Male calves were also more likely to be fed a higher proportion of raw, unsalable milk. Female producers and those that kept their male calves beyond 10 d of age had lower odds of using poorer feeding practices for male calves. Male calves were mostly sold between 1 and 10 d (64%), primarily through direct sales to a calf-rearing facility (45%), with auctions being the next most common method (35%). A small but notable proportion of producers (18%) agreed that euthanizing male calves is a reasonable alternative when their sale price is very low; however, few producers (13%) reported that financial costs limited their male calf care. The largest proportion (43%) of producers reported that a price premium for more vigorous calves would motivate them to take better care of their male calves. Conversely, only 28% of producers reported that a price discount for calves in poor condition would be motivating. Producers placed importance on the opinion of their calf buyer, their herd veterinarian, and the Canadian Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Dairy Cattle when considering their calf care practices, and they highly valued practices that promote calf health. Respondents to this survey reported a lower proportion of tiestall barn use and higher milk productivity compared with typical dairy herds in the region, suggesting selection bias for more progressive dairy producers. Nevertheless, our results suggest that dairy producers provide similar care between male and female calves, but some male calves experience challenges due to milk feeding and marketing practices. Feedback from calf buyers along with continued support and guidance from herd veterinarians and the Code of Practice may motivate dairy producers to improve male calf care.

Studies have shown that romantic partners in consensual non-monogamous (CNM) relationships are targets of stigmatization. However, little is known about the underlying mechanisms and the conditions under which such stigmatization occurs. In two experimental studies (combined N = 772), we asked participants to read the description of two partners in a relationship (monogamous vs. open relationship vs. polyamorous) and make a series of judgments about those partners. Overall results showed that CNM (vs. monogamous) partners were perceived as less trustworthy and as having more sexual health concerns (Studies 1 and 2), and as being less committed and less sexually satisfied (Study 2). Results from a conditional mediation analysis (Study 2) further showed that participants with negative attitudes toward consensual non-monogamy perceived CNM (vs. monogamous) partners as having less conservation and more openness to change values, which was then associated with more stigmatization. In contrast, participants with positive attitudes toward consensual non-monogamy perceived CNM (vs. monogamous) partners as having more openness to change values, which was then associated with less stigmatization. Taken together, these results extended the literature focused on prejudice, discrimination, and stigmatization of minority groups and highlighted key elements that can be used to buffer stigmatization.

Microplastics are an issue of rising concern, in terms of their possible implications for both the environment and human health. A survey was distributed among a representative sample of the adult Norwegian population (N = 2720) to explore the public understanding of microplastics. Respondents were asked to report the first thing that came to mind when they read or heard the word "microplastics," based on which a coding scheme was developed that served to categorize the obtained answers into thematic clusters. Results indicate that the public seem to think of microplastics as something bad that might pollute the ocean and harm animal species. Awareness of the sources of microplastics appeared to be rather low, and few respondents mentioned potential ways to solve the problem. Responses differed across certain socio-demographic characteristics; for example, female and younger respondents were more likely to think about the spread and causes/sources of microplastics, whereas a higher educational level was associated positively with thinking of ways to solve the problem. Additional analyses indicated relationships between personal values and the identified thematic clusters; for example, endorsing self-transcendence and openness-to-change values was associated with thinking of ways to solve and of consequences of microplastics. These findings are informative to those wanting to design tailored communications and interventions aimed at reducing plastic pollution and plastic waste.
... Indeed, Burisch (1997) argued that shortened measures can be just as valid as long measures. For instance, the five and ten-item scales to measure personality dimensions (Gosling et al., 2003), the ten items to assess values (Sandy et al., 2017), and one item to evaluate selfesteem (Robins et al., 2001) are shortened scales with adequate psychometric characteristics. Hwang et al. (2008) created an abbreviation of Sprecher and Fehr's strangerhumanity form of the CLS, the Santa Clara Brief Compassion Scale (SCBCS) with five items from the original scale. ...

Compassionate love centres on expanding beneficence to another. This research reports the development and preliminary validation of a shortened tool of compassionate love for a partner, based on the Compassionate Love Scale (CLS). Three studies were carried out in Portugal. Study 1 explored the underlying factor structure of the CLS. Based on this study, a short form of the measure was proposed (CLS-P-SF). In the two other studies the underlying structure of the CLS-P-SF using confirmatory factor techniques and its psychometric properties were examined. Good construct validity for this unidimensional measure was obtained via confirmatory factor analyses. Overall, results revealed that the CLS-P-SF has adequate levels of reliability, convergent validity, discriminant validity, and incremental validity. We obtained a short, reliable, and valid instrument to assess compassionate love for a romantic partner.
... Short scales, which are quick and efficient to administer, have shown to be advantageous in numerous contexts such as large-scale studies, where long questionnaires pose the risk of introducing bias due to participant fatigue (Sandy et al., 2017;Schipolowski et al., 2014). Nonetheless, it is important that all such scales have a profile of high psychometric quality, including cross-cultural validation. ...

Short scales assessing human–nature relationships have the practical advantages of being efficient, low in item redundancy and less at risk of inducing fatigue and boredom. It is critical that these short scales are subject to the same psychometric scrutiny as their longer versions. The present study focused on the short version of the Nature Relatedness (NR) Scale: the NR-6. Specifically, we aimed to provide the first test of its factor structure using confirmatory factor analysis and to describe the discriminability and difficulty of its six items via Item Response Theory. The study sample comprised 510 adults from Portugal. Confirmatory factor analyses supported a bifactor model over a one-factor model. Bifactor indices showed that the NR-6 items measure an essentially unidimensional nature relatedness construct. The six items were good at discriminating individuals varying in nature relatedness. Finally, consistent with prior research, we found a strong positive correlation between the NR-6 and a conceptually related measure. We conclude that the NR-6 has adequate psychometric properties and is a valid measure of individuals’ nature relatedness.
... Despite its promise, research has been hampered by the fact that the MSLSS is significantly larger than the other questionnaires, and is therefore impractical for longitudinal or large-scale studies (Seligson et al., 2003). Other contexts in which brief measures are preferable include, Internet-based data collection, prescreening, and large studies where other relevant variables should be included for a more nuanced understanding of the underlying phenomena (Sandy et al., 2017). ...

PurposeThe purpose of the study was to test the psychometrics of the Brief Multidimensional Students’ Life Satisfaction Scale (BMSLSS) in a large sample of adolescents (n = 4863, 54.2% females) from Portugal. The six-item version of the BMSLSS measures the self-perceived satisfaction with life in multiple domains (i.e. family life, friends, school experiences, self, where one lives and ‘in general’).Methods The internal consistency of the BMSLSS was evaluated through McDonald’s Omega. For the assessment of factorial structure, we employed a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), and then tested measurement invariance with a multi-group CFA (MGCFA). Construct validity was obtained by correlating the BMSLSS scores with multiple wellbeing-related scales. Finally, Item Response Theory (IRT) allowed us to test the properties of the scale at the item and model levels.ResultsThe full scale had good reliability (ω = 0.87), and the CFA’s provided evidences that the one-factor structure has excellent fit (CFI = 0.972, RMSEA = 0.052, 90% CI [0.046, 0.058], SRMR = 0.028). Additionally, the MGCFA indicated that the BMSLSS had configural, metric, and partial scalar invariance across grades, gender and academic ability. Furthermore, student’s LS was related to higher perceived quality of life, satisfaction with social support, and affective wellbeing. Item Response Theory revealed good item discrimination.Conclusions The Portuguese adaptation of the BMSLSS has good psychometrics, and is a reliable tool to measure LS in different groups of adolescents.
... For example, Schwartz et al. (2001) found participants could rate only 29 portraits (containing an average of 20 words each) in about the same time needed to rate 57 abstract labels accompanied by descriptions (containing an average of 12 words each). Accordingly, portrait-based instruments have been developed to present only 10 or 20 values (Sandy et al., 2017). ...

Values provide a foundation for decision making, behavior, and emotional reaction; they are often used by practitioners to design effective interventions for self-awareness and personal growth. This report describes a novel, user-friendly method that identifies core values with a hierarchical ipsatization procedure (HIP) that is transparent and efficient. Response bias, validity, and user satisfaction were examined in a study in which 602 respondents completed a survey asking them to rate 80 values and use HIP to identify their 4 most inspiring and motivating values. HIP enabled selecting these 4 core values from 80 candidates in 5-7 min, with minimal evidence of response bias. The selections made during HIP were consistent with the rating data, providing evidence for HIP's concurrent validity. 88% of the respondents felt the 4 values identified by HIP inspired and motivated them more than any other values they could think of. These findings suggest HIP is a useful tool for identifying core values, especially in applied settings.
... Still, values are latent, abstract constructs that can be particularly challenging to capture with brief survey instruments, and the validity of the HVS has been questioned in recent years. For example, some studies have pointed to low reliability and lack of discriminant validity between some of the values, and revised short forms of the HVS and PVQ, and alternative groupings of the human values, have therefore been proposed (e.g., Knoppen & Saris, 2009;Sandy, Gosling, Schwartz & Koelkebeck, 2016). Future studies may gain more insight into the relationship between human values and sick leave with improved versions of the values scale. ...

There is growing recognition that dispositional factors and social norms can predict work absence. Human values have been linked to related concepts, including work commitment and receipt of disability pension; however, there is a lack of research on whether human values are associated with sickness absence. We address this issue by combining survey data from two waves (2007, 2017) of the Norwegian Life‐Course, Ageing and Generation Study (N = 1,330) with longitudinal register data on sickness absence between survey waves. Stepwise regression analyses showed that, out of Schwartz's 10 basic values, achievement was prospectively associated with higher levels of self‐reported sick leave, even when controlling for a variety of potential confounders. Self‐direction was also related to higher risk of self‐reported sick leave in the adjusted analysis. Conservation values (security and conformity) were related to stricter attitudes toward sick leave when controlling for potential confounders, while stimulation was associated with lenient sick leave attitudes in the adjusted analysis. None of the human values were prospectively associated with longer‐term register‐based sick leave beyond bivariate correlations. We conclude that broad human values to some extent predict attitudes toward sick leave and self‐certified sick leave where persons may vary according to which degree they consider sick leave to be necessary and appropriate, while human values do not predict long‐term, physician‐certified sickness absence. Future research may examine whether health‐ or work‐specific values have greater explanatory power for sick leave, including long‐term sickness absence that is typically more closely linked to more serious health problems.
