I ...I am looking for scoring instructions as well. I noticed in the original article, the authors indicated that they unit weighted the items to calculate scale scores. So, I believe this means you calculate 5 different scale scores by simply taking the average of the item responses. This would mean taking the average of the 6 items in 4 categories and taking the average of 12 items in the danger/contamination category. <br /><br />My main question is whether it would be appropriate to also compute a single CSS composite score, and if so, how this should be done. The author's point out that the scales are intercorrelated and load onto a single higher order factor, thus supporting the notion of a "Covid Stress Syndrome." It would therefore seem appropriate to compute a single composite score. The author's also note that they did not reduce the "contamination and danger" scale to 6 items so that it would be possible to separate contamination from danger in the future. Although "contamination and danger" has double the items as the 4 other scales, it would seem appropriate that "contamination and danger" should only be given equal weight with the other scales in calculating a composite score. Therefore, I would think a composite score could best be calculated by summing the mean of each scale and dividing by 5.

However, I have not been able to locate a copy of the scoring instructions. If anyone has access to these or knows how to access a copy I would REALLY appreciate it if they could be sent to me. <br /><br />Thank you in advance. :)<br />CAnonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/13192036759774443083noreply@blogger.com
