Basha, Ertan; Kaya, Mehmet
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v4 n12 p2701-2705 2016
The purpose of this study is to examine validity and reliability of the Albanian version of the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS), which is developed by Lovibond and Lovibond (1995). The sample of this study is consisted of 555 subjects who were living in Kosovo. The results of confirmatory factor analysis indicated 42 items loaded on three factors (Depression, Anxiety and Stress). As it is shown in the original form, the scale is occurred by three factors. Factor's coefficients were as follows: for the depression 0.25 to 0.61, for anxiety 0.30 to 0.53 and for stress 0.31 to 0.51 for overall scale. Compliance validation points of DASS were respectively found between 0.85 and 0.81, and 0.80. Item total correlations were 0.25 to 0.61. Findings demonstrated that the Albanian version of DASS has similarity with other researches for reliability and validity scores.
