The Attitude Toward Public Drinking Involvement Scale.
Hays, Ron
This study describes preliminary work on the development of a scale to assess attitude toward public drinking involvement. A sample of 46 students at a west-coast university participated in the study. Respondents completed a questionnaire containing a measure of Attitude Toward Public Drinking Involvement Scale (ATPDIS) and various validity variables. It was hypothesized that individuals possessing a more negative attitude toward drinking involvement would hold more conservative beliefs about alcohol use in general, be less involved in alcohol use, and place a higher value on health. The correlations between the ATPDIS and these validity items were examined to evaluate convergent validity. The relationship between the ATPDIS and each validity item is presented in Table 2. The ATPDIS was found to have adequate internal consistency reliability and exhibit convergent validity in a sample of college students. (LMO)
