To measure stress : Adaptation and validation of Dundee Stress State Questionnaire (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien hade till syfte att adaptera och validera den multidimensionella stressenkäten Dundee Stress State Questionnaire (DSSQ) som mäter stress utifrån 12 skalor som sammanfaller kring tre högre dimensioner: uppgiftsfokus, ångest och oro. DSSQ adapteras från originalspråket, engelska, till svenska. Tillämpbarheten för den svenska versionen av DSSQ undersöks genom att studera enkätens reliabilitet och validitet samt genom att tillämpa enkäten i två olika kontext, där två olika typer av uppgifter genomförs, ett arbetsminnestest och en polisstudentövning.

Sammantaget visade resultatet att den svenska adaptionen av DSSQ har en hög reliabilitet. Dock gick det inte att bekräfta att den svenska adaptionen av DSSQ bibehåller samma faktormodell som originalversionen av DSSQ. Den statistiska analysen visade att de förändringar som identifierats i deltagarnas sinnesstämning delvis stämmer överens med tidigare forskning. Slutsatsen är att fler deltagare behövs för att validera faktormodellen hos den svenska adaptionen av DSSQ och den svenska adaptionen av DSSQ anses vara tillämpar i forskning då den visar på god reliabilitet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to adapt and validate the Dundee Stress State Questionnaire (DSSQ), which measures stress based on 12 scales that cohere around three higher order dimensions: task engagement, distress and worry. DSSQ is adapted from its original language, English, to Swedish. The applicability of the Swedish version of DSSQ is tested by studying the questionnaire's reliability and validity, and by applying the survey in two different contexts, where two different tasks are performed, a work memory task and a police student exam task.

Overall, the result showed that the Swedish adaptation of DSSQ has high reliability. However, it was not possible to confirm that the Swedish adaptation of DSSQ maintained the same factor model as the original DSSQ has. The statistical analysis showed the changes identified in the participants' moods partly in lines with previous research. The conclusion is that more participants are needed to validate the factor model for the Swedish adaptation of DSSQ and since the Swedish adaptation of DSSQ shows good reliability, it can be applied in research.
