A Psychometric Evaluation of the Spanier Dyadic Adjustment Scale

Abstract

The measurement of marital or dyadic adjustment remains a problem for researchers. The present study examines one instrument recently devised to reliably classify respondents for research purposes into high- and low-adjustment groups. Data indicate that, while the overall scale performs the stated task reliably, the majority of its 32 items are unnecessary. Factor analysis revealed that there was one underlying "adjustment" dimension. Previous factor structures were not replicated.
