Abstract:
The development and validation of the Polish-language version of the Dating Anxiety Scale for Adolescents (DAS-A) (Glickman & La Greca, 2004) is described in this article. The aim of this study was to develop and validate the Polish version of the DAS-A in a sample of young adults, and to establish the psychometric properties of this instrument measuring fear of negative evaluation in dating situations, social distress in interactions with real or potential dating partners, and social distress in interactions in groups of mixed-sex individuals. A total of 287 university students completed the Polish version of the DAS-A for adults. Differences in the factor structures between the original and Polish version of the DAS-A were found. The factor structure did not fully replicate for Polish respondents. At the same time, the results indicated that the Polish version of the DAS-A is a reliable and valid measure of dating anxiety among young adults with good levels of internal consistency, homogeneity and construct validity.
