Consideration of the scale’s validity, generally defined as the extent to which a test measures what it purports to measure, is also crucial. Simply determining whether or not the scale looks like it is measuring what it is supposed to be measuring, referred to as face validity, is too subjective and therefore not scientifically useful. Content validity refers to whether or not a representative sample of the domain is being covered. For example, perhaps you are working with a measure of spiritual disciplines.

However, later examination of the wording of the scale items revealed that they were constructed in such a way that by virtue of the phrases used they linked prayer with wishing or hoping, that is, less active and generally less effective coping strategies. Other investigators20 noted that prayer may indeed be part of a passive or deferring coping style, however, it may alternately be part of what has been called a collaborative coping strategy, one in which the individual beseeches God’s help with the situation but also recognizes that she/he must be an active partner in solving the problem.
