Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a study report that provides support for the psychometric and interpretive utility of the Assessment of Spirituality and Religious Sentiments (ASPIRES) short forms (SF), both the self-report and observer-rater versions. Samples of college undergraduates and community-based adults were included in the study. Results show that the short forms were reliable, structurally valid, and possessed significant overlap with their long form parents. Creating a short form brings with it the advantage of time saving in both completing and scoring the reduced instrument. Short forms are well suited for situations where time is limited or an individual has reduced capacities for sustained testing. Users can be confident that the short form versions validly represent the spiritual and religious constructs present in their parent versions.

Keywords:Assessment of Spirituality and Religious Sentiments; psychometric utility; religious constructs; short forms (SF); spiritual constructs
