The African American Acculturation Scale: Development, Reliability, and Validity

Abstract

This article describes the development, reliability, and validity of the African American Acculturation Scale. This 74-item scale has good construct and concurrent validity. The eight subscales, assessing eight dimensions of African American culture, have high internal consistency reliability, and the scale as a whole has high split-half reliability. African Americans’ scores on the scale were unrelated to social class, gender, and education. The need for cross-validation of the scale and for specific research projects using it are detailed.
