Abstract

This study examines the psychometric properties of the Stress Appraisal Measure (SAM) across three separate and independent samples. A calibration study was conducted with a sample of university students (n = 461), resulting in a 5-factor model based on a parallel analysis and a principal axis factor analysis with direct oblimin rotation. Factor invariance across males and females, convergent validity, and discriminant validity were tested using a second sample of university students (n = 751) and adults (n = 548). The 5-factor model obtained in the calibration study was replicated employing a confirmatory factor analysis of the data from the validation study. Factor invariance across males and females was confirmed. In addition to satisfactory internal consistencies, the correlation of the SAM scales with a conceptually related measure (state anxiety) and a conceptually unrelated measure (social desirability) support the convergent and discriminant validity of the SAM.
