Gratitude Resentment and Appreciation Test-Short Form (GRAT-S)

 



Scale name: Gratitude Resentment and Appreciation Test-Short Form (GRAT-S)

Scale overview: The short form of the Gratitude Resentment and Appreciation Test (GRAT-S) is a self-report measure, which consists of 16 items assessing trait gratitude.

The original GRAT scale by Watkins et al. (2003) consisted of 44 items rated on a five-point scale of agreement. The 16-item short form (GRAT-S) was used by Watkins et al. (2017) in a study about joy and gratitude.

Response Type: The 16 items are rated on a 9-point scale of agreement from 1 = I strongly disagree to 9 = I strongly agree with the statement.

Sample Scale items

1. I couldn't have gotten where I am today without the help of many people.

6. I really don't think that I've gotten all the good things that I deserve in life. (Reverse score)

 

Reliability: Watkins et al. (2017) reported GRAT-S Cronbach’s alpha = .84.

Validity: The GRAT-S was positively correlated with the State Joy Scale and the Dispositional Joy Scale (Watkins et al., 2017).

 

Availability:

The short form was available this date from the Berkeley Greater Good Science Center. https://ggsc.berkeley.edu/images/uploads/Gratitude_Resentment_and_Appreciation_Scale.pdf

Trait Gratitude and Wholistic Assessment

As a personality trait, gratitude may be viewed as a facet of observable behavior patterns (O) in the SCOPES model. As measured on the GRAT-S, the trait appears to have attendant dimensions of cognition (C ) and emotion (E). See measures related to SCOPES in Creating Surveys (Sutton, 2021).

Reliability and Validity In the first study, coefficient alpha = .85 and in study two, alpha = .83. Data analysis supported a four-dimensional model (see the four categories above). Positive correlations with other self-concept measures were statistically significant. Other notes The authors estimated it took about 10 minutes to complete the PSQ. Their first study included people ages 12 to 36 ( n = 506). In the second s
