(author)Tewksbury, Richard (author)Denney, Andrew (author) Located In Journal of applied measurement ISSN 1529-7713 Volume 13 Issue 4 Date 2013 Abstract Today, the amount of stress the correctional staff endures at work is an important issue. Research has addressed this issue, but has yielded no consensus as to a properly calibrated measure of perceptions of work stress for correctional staff. Using data from a non-random sample of correctional staff (n=228), the Rasch model was used to assess whether a specific measure of work stress would fit the model. Results suggest that three items accurately represented correctional staff perceptions of work stress.
