Psychometric Evaluation of the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) Using Iranian Students
Khoshouei, Mahdieh Sadat
International Journal of Testing, v9 n1 p60-66 Jan 2009
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Persian version of the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC). The CD-RISC was completed by a sample of 323 Isfahan university students (168 females, 155 males) aged 19-34 years. A maximum likelihood method with an oblique solution resulted in four factors (achievement motivation, self-confidence, tenacity, and adaptability), and all estimates of reliability (alpha and test-retest correlations) coefficients were sufficiently high to provide confidence in the scores from these four factors of resilience.
