Brief Report: Rasch Analysis of the Locus-of-Hope Scale

Adonis P. David | Leny G. Gadiana



The Locus-of-Hope Scale (LHS) was developed as a measure of the locus-of-hope dimensions (Bernardo, 2010). The present study adds to the emerging literature on locus-of-hope by assessing the psychometric properties of the LHS using Rasch analysis. The results from the Rasch analyses of the four subscales of LHS provided evidence on the reliability, validity, and measurement precision of the LHS.
