Development of Constructive Coping Scale
The present study aimed to develop a measurement scale for constructive coping, which is a significant concept in the coping process. Constructive coping refers to efforts to deal with a stressful event that is considered relatively healthy. Therefore, understanding the relationship between coping processes and adaptation outcomes has become a major concern among stress researchers. The items were designed in the form of statements on a Five-Point Likert scale. The population sample included postgraduate students between 20 and 23 years old. A sample size of 511 was considered, of which 357 were females and 154 males. Item analysis was performed using Mathew Item Analysis table and item selection was performed using the highest correlation values (Phi) and medium P values. The final scale consists of twenty-one items for which Split-Half Reliability, as well as validity using coefficients of Pearson and Spearman’s Rank correlation, were calculated respectively.
