Adaptation of the Relationship Assessment Scale for Use in Bangladesh
The aim of the present research was to adapt the Relationship Assessment Scale, designed to measure one’s relationship satisfaction in a romantic relation. Data were collected from conveniently selected 263 adult participants (age range 18 to 58 years) who were engaged in romantic relationships (married or dating). Participants responded to a questionnaire that included measures of relationship satisfaction and dispositional mindfulness. Results showed that the Bangla RAS poses sound reliability (Cronbach’s Alpha 0.86, split-half reliability 0.82) temporal stability (test-retest reliability 0.88) and a moderate validty. These results demonstrated that this scale is a valid and reliable instrument for assessing quality of interpersonal relationship. Future research is needed for establishing sound validty involving diverse population.
