Abstract


In the present era, life evolution increased exposure and effects students with extensively recognized issues and stressors. The study aimed to (1) measure the multi factors of perceived stress among students, and (2) development and validation of students' perceived stress scale. UG and PG students were randomly selected from two universities of Punjab (India). The result of EFA revealed eight factors consist 28 items of the Students' Perceived Stress Scale (SPSs). The SPSs has high content, construct and intrinsic validity and it has high internal consistency (0.887) alpha (α) for overall scale; 0.777 α for positive items; and 0.813 α for negative items of SPSs; 0.905 split half reliability and 0.815 test retest reliability. The present scale comprehensively covers the concept of Students' Perceived Stress and shows satisfactory reliability and validity and distinguished that the SPSs is appropriate for students.
