The Deaf Acculturation Scale (DAS): Development and Validation of a 58-Item Measure
Maxwell-McCaw, Deborah; Zea, Maria Cecilia
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v16 n3 p325-342 Sum 2011
This study involved the development and validation of the Deaf Acculturation Scale (DAS), a new measure of cultural identity for Deaf and hard-of-hearing (hh) populations. Data for this study were collected online and involved a nation-wide sample of 3,070 deaf/hh individuals. Results indicated strong internal reliabilities for all the subscales, and construct validity was established by demonstrating that the DAS could discriminate groups based on parental hearing status, school background, and use of self-labels. Construct validity was further demonstrated through factorial analyses, and findings resulted in a final 58-item measure. Directions for future research are discussed.
