Revision of the Chinese Version of the Short Home Attachment Scale and Its Reliability and Validity Test
Objective: To revise The Short Home Attachment Scale (SHAS) and test its reliability and validity in college students. Methods: The Chinese version of SHAS was determined by item analysis and exploratory factor analysis, and its structure was determined by confirmatory factor analysis. Finally, the reliability and validity of the scale were tested. Results: The 7 items of Chinese SHAS had good differentiation. The results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis (χ2/df=3.53, RMSEA=0.07, CFI=0.97, TLI=0.95, SRMR=0.03) all supported the single factor structure, and
the reliability and validity of the scale met the requirements of measurement. Conclusion: The revised Chinese version of SHAS meets the standards of measurement and can be used as a reliable tool to measure family attachment of Chinese college students.
