Cross-Cultural Validity of the Almost Perfect Scale-Revised on the College Students in the United States and Turkey
Aydin, Kamile Bahar
Educational Research and Reviews, v8 n14 p1150-1157 Jul 2013
This study investigated the cultural validity of the almost perfect scale-revised (APS-R) with 300 Turkish and 300 American and international college students. First, the validity of the original APS-R was conducted on American students and international students. Hence, exploratory factor analysis (EFA) offered two-factor scale to be consistent with previous studies: High standards and discrepancy. Afterwards, the scale was translated from English to Turkish. For the Turkish sample, an EFA offered an evidence for three-factor scale: High standards, dissatisfaction, and discrepancy. The high standards is the only subscale similar to the original scale. Finally, the results were interpreted through concept of culture. (Contains 4 tables and 1 footnote.)
