Sexual Orientation Identity Development Scale SOI

 


Scale name:  Sexual Orientation Identity Development Scale  (SOI)

Scale overview:

The Sexual Orientation Identity Development Scale measures three dimensions of sexual orientation: Affirmation, Exploration, Resolution. English and Spanish versions are available.

Authors:  Toomey, R. B., Anhalt, K., & Shramko, M.

Response Type4-point rating scale: 

1 = Does not describe me at all, 

2 = Describes me a little,

3 = Describes me well, 

4 = Describes me very well.

Español

1 = No me describe en absolute,  

2 = Me escribe un poco,  

3 = Me describe bien,

4 = Me describe muy bien


Subscales: There are three subscales (alpha values in parentheses):

     Affirmation (Spearman-Brown .81)

     Exploration (Spearman-Brown .61)

     Resolution (alpha .67)

 

Sample items

  1. I have attended events that have helped me learn about my sexual orientation, such as gay-straight alliance meetings or events at a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community center.

  9. I have a clear sense of what my sexual orientation means to me.

Español

  1.  He asistido a eventos que me han ayudado a aprender más acerca de mi orientación sexual. Por ejemplo, he asistido al club de estudiantes GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance/Alianza Gay-Heterosexual) en mi escuela ó a eventos en el centro comunitario LGBT.

  9.  Tengo un sentido claro de lo que significa mi orientación sexual para mí.

 

Reliability: See the alpha values next to each subscale above.

Validity:

The authors used factor analysis to examine the structure of the scale.

“In terms of construct validity, we found that SOI resolution and affirmation were both positively associated with self-esteem and negatively correlated with internalized homonegativity. SOI exploration, however, was not associated with self-esteem or internalized homonegativity.” (Toomey et al., 2016, p. 499)

See the article below for more details.

Availability: The full set of items are available in English and Spanish with the four point ratings at the PsycTESTS reference– see below.

Spearman-Brown

 



The Spearman-Brown formula estimates test score reliability of a full-length test when using a split-half method of reliability.

The split-half method divides a test in two and calculate a correlation between the scores of the two halves. Longer tests are yield higher reliability values so the Spearman-Brown formula estimates the reliability value for the full test.

Other names for the Spearman-Brown formula are Spearman-Brown Prophecy Formula, Spearman-Brown Correction.

Response Type: 7-point Likert-type ratings from 1 = strongly disagree to 7 = strongly agree.

Subscales:  Four (coefficient alphas in parentheses from two samples)

Illegitimacy of Bisexual Identity (.80, .84)

Anticipated Binegativity (.78, .73)

Internalized Binegativity (.87, .84)

Identity Affirmation (.91, .93)

24. I would be better off if I would identify as gay or straight, rather than bisexual

Reliability: Coefficient alphas range from .73 to .93 for the

Validity: All subscales except Identity Affirmation were significantly correlated with depression (Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale). Identity affirmation was significantly positively correlated with a measure of outness (Outness Inventory).

Availability: The full set of 24 items is in PsycTESTS – see reference below.

Permissions:Researchers may use this scale without contacting us to obtain permission. However, we ask that reports of findings using this scale be forwarded to Nathan Grant Smith.”

5 Love Languages Personal Profile for Couples

 


Scale name: Love Languages Personal Profile for Couples (LLPP)

Scale overview: The LLPP is a 50 item forced-choice measure developed by Chapman. There are 12 statements for each love language and each language is paired 3 times.

Author: Gary Chapman

Response Type

Subscales: There are 5 subscales corresponding to the 5 Love Language

__________

Sample items:


10. It's more meaningful to me when...

     A. I hear my partner tell me, "I'm proud of you."

     D. my partner helps me with a task.

7.  It's more meaningful to me when...

C. my partner gives me a gift.

A. I hear "l love you" from my partner.

__________

Reliability: Scales based on the 5 love languages have reported acceptable alpha levels. See Bland and McQueen (2018) for a summary.

Validity: The model of the 5 love languages has received general support in studies using different measures of the 5 love languages. Bland and McQueen (2018) examined the LLPP and found evidence that couples with similar love language preferences were more likely to report relationship satisfaction.

Availability: Link to the: love language quiz available online.

For a pdf version of the LLPP, see the link to Chapman 2015 below.

Behaviors Toward God Scale (BTGS)

 


Scale name:    Behaviors Toward God Scale (BTGS)

Scale overview: The Behaviors Toward God Scale (BTGS) is an 18-item self-report measure of  behavioral responses toward God when people experience a spiritual or religious struggle. The items are grouped into four subscales.

Authors: Julie J. Exline et al. (2021)

Response Type:  

Participants read a statement and rate their behavioral response from 0 = not at all to 10 = extremely.

Subscales: Four (sample item in parentheses)

1. Approach – draw close (tried to trust God)

2. Disengage - turn away or exit (ignored God)

3. Protest-  complain, argue, or question (asked God "Why?")

4. Suppress – avoid or minimize negative feelings toward God (tried to hide feelings of anger or disappointment toward God)

 

Reliability: alpha values for the four subscales ranged from .80 to .89 in study 1 and .79 to .91 in study 2 (Exline et al., 2021)

Validity: The Exline  et al. 2021 article includes the results of factor analyses and correlations with other measures. A technical report by Stauner & Exline (2020) provides a look at the factor structure of a 23-item version, which was reduced to 18-items.
