Development of Russian version of the contingencies of self-worth scale

Olga N. Molchanova, Tatyana Y. Nekrasova.
This article describes the creation of a Russian-language version of the Contingencies of Self-Worth Scale (CSWS). We report the process and the three stages of adapting the questionnaire and report the results of the stage three version (N = 422); an internal consistency test (Cronbach's Alpha – from 0.67 to 0.84); item discrimination (0.55 to 0.86); retest reliability (0.54 to 0.79, p < 0.001); and construct validity. The analysis of the psychometric characteristics of the questionnaire confirmed the possibility of its appropriateness as a research tool to elicit the basis of self-esteem.
