@aamir Hi, I just want to know, how to calculate the results on WOSS(1978).

There we can get -

Answers on the scale range from 1-5 points, with 1 = never, 2 = seldom, 3 = sometimes, 4 = frequently, and 5 = nearly always. - after that what do we have to do? let me know the steps. thank you. This is an immediate case, much grateful for your reply!

And there - https://psychologyroots.com/weimen-occupational-stress-scale-woss/ - they have mentioned the "Weiman Occupational Stress Scale has yielded a .90 reliability coefficient". But in the

- they have mentioned that "The reliability of the scale was
calculated as 0.789. High levels in the scale indicated high levels of occupational stress." let me know the difference?

Hi @christeenchandima!

Currently available data will share in our post. However, the difference between reliability is due to research and different sample.

I try to share more information about your both question soon.

The standardized instrument utilized was the Weiman Occupational StressScale, which was designed in 1978. The Weiman Occupational Stress Scale was used to
establish a baseline score for the participants in the study. The Weiman Scale is a fifteen
question Likert-type instrument that measures work related stress. Answers on the scale
range from 1-5 points, with 1 = never, 2 = seldom, 3 = sometimes, 4 = frequently, and 5 =
nearly always.

Past administrations of the Weiman Occupational Stress Scale have yielded a
.90 reliability coefficient and has also been shown to be a valid measure of occupational
stress (Greenberg, 1990).

The Weiman Occupational Stress Scale has also shown predictive validity in
that high scores on this scale been used as not only an indicator of present stress
experienced by employees, but also of future stress associated with their positions if they
do not proactively act to resolve their present situations (Steber, 1998).
To determine the three most common strategies identified by mental health
counselors for the reduction of stress, the participants were asked to identify and rank
order stress management techniques and/or methods which had been provided for the
subjects in the form of a list.
The author chose these instruments for several reasons. Both the Weiman
Occupational Stress Scale and the listed questionnaire were simple instruments for
subjects to complete and it takes very limited time and instructions. On average, the
questionnaires took approximately 10-15 minutes to complete
