Psychometrics of the Revised College Student Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire
Renshaw, Tyler L.
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v33 n2 p136-149 Jun 2018
The College Student Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire (CSSWQ) is a 15-item self-report rating scale for measuring four classes of college-specific wellbeing behavior: academic efficacy, academic satisfaction, school connectedness, and college gratitude. The present study investigated the psychometrics of a revised version of this measure, which included an additional item measuring academic satisfaction (for the purposes of balancing the number of items across subscales) and standardized the response options for all items to a unified 7-point Likert-type scale (for the purposes of enhancing administration feasibility and scoring interpretability), with a sample of current U.S. college students (N = 401). Results indicated that responses to the revised version of the CSSWQ had adequate data--model fit to the proposed higher-order measurement model, that all factors were characterized by strong latent construct reliability, and that the higher-order factor demonstrated convergent validity with several domain-general measures of wellbeing and mental health problems. Implications for future research and practice are discussed.
