About Translation and Adaptation of Revised Children’s Anxiety and Depression Scale
The aim of the present study was to translate, adapt and validate the English version of the Revised Children’s Anxiety and Depression Scale (RCADS) into the Urdu language to make it more comprehensible and reliable for the Pakistani population.
This study was based on three stages; (1) Translation and Adaptation of Revised Children’s Anxiety and Depression Scale, (2) Finding out linguistic Equivalence/Cross-validation, and (3) establishing psychometric properties of Revised Children’s Anxiety and Depression Scale. In the first phase; the Revised Children’s Anxiety and Depression Scale was translated into the Urdu language. The standard procedure of translation was followed. In order to find out the difficulty in language and ambiguity or other issues, a pilot study was conducted.
The second phase of the study was characterized to find out the linguistic equivalence of the Revised Children’s Anxiety and Depression Scale. A Sample of 217 participants, 102 male, and 115 females was selected for the administration of scale, ranging from age 12 to 18 years. Random and purposive sampling procedures were used to select the participants.
In the third phase, psychometric properties of the Urdu version of RCADS was established. In order to find out the linguistic equivalence between original and translated versions of RCADS, and to establish the psychometric properties of RCADS, Pearson Product moment coefficient of correlation and Cronbach’s alpha were used. The estimate shows significant results (r=.87) at a .01 level of significance. The scale demonstrated its strength by providing significant test-retest reliability (r=.83) at the .01 alpha level.
