Reliability and validity of Palestinian student alienation scale
To develop an a Arabic version of the Student Alienation Scale (SAS), two Arab bilinguals achieved consensus in their translation of the twenty-four items. Five hundred seventy-four students from 14 to 21 years of age completed the SAS, and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS), the Symptom Checklist-90-R, and Spheres of Control (SOCQ). Internal consistency was found to be high (alpha = .75); split-half reliability was moderately high (.71), and test-retest was (r = .52, n = 29, p < .01). Estimates of concurrent validity indicated a significant correlation between the SAS and BDI, SWLS, SCL-90-R and SOCQ. The findings indicated that the Arabic version of SAS is suitable for use in research and clinical work
