The Spiritual Transformation Inventory and SpiritPulse represent a new class of spiritual assessment that combine theoretical depth, scientific rigor, practical utility, and national benchmark norms.
All 33 STI scales meet the highest standard of reliability as measured by Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient. STI Alpha coefficients range from .75 to .94, with a mean of .87, indicating a high degree of internal consistency according to scientific standards which set .70 as the minimum coefficient for “acceptable” reliability.
Over 10 years of research on the STI has demonstrated strong construct validity based on: 1) factor analysis procedures; 2) convergent and divergent validity based on correlations with numerous independent measures of spirituality, psychological well-being, and physical symptom; and 3) known groups validity based on discriminating between nominated spiritual exemplars and non-exemplars.
The SpiritPulse has demonstrated construct validity based on domain total scores predicting outcomes such as spiritual struggles, spiritual well-being and overall well-being.
