About Maslach Burnout Inventory – Student Survey
In order to assess exhaustion, cynicism, and efficacy a modified version of the Maslach-Burnout Inventory-General Survey (MBI-GS; Schaufeli, Leiter, Maslach, & Jackson, 1996) was used that was slightly adapted for use in student samples: the MBI-SS (Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (Schaufeli et al., 2002b). For instance, the item “I feel emotionally drained from my work ” was rephrased as “I feel emotionally drained from my studies”. The MBI-SS consists of 16 items that are grouped into three scales: Exhaustion (EX; five items), Cynicism (CY; five items), and academic Efficacy (EF; six items). All items were scored on a 7-point frequency rating scale ranging from “0” (never) to “6” (always). High scores on EX and CY, and low scores on EF are indicative of burnout (i.e. all EF items were reverse-scored).
As suggested by Schutte et al. (2000), one CY item (“ When I’m in class or I’m studying I don’t want to be bothered”) was eliminated because it was shown to be ambivalent and thus unsound. For the Dutch and Spanish samples, the previously adapted published Dutch (Schaufeli & Van Dierendonck, 2000) and Spanish (Salanova & Schaufeli, 2000) translations of the MBI-SS were used, respectively.
Finally, to assess “inefficacy” the scale from the MBI-SS measuring academic efficacy was reworded, that is, all items were rephrased negatively (INEF) (see Appendix). In order to avoid answering bias, in both samples, the positive and negatively worded items were presented in random order.
