Student-Life Stress Inventory.
Gadzella, Bernadette M.; And Others
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)
