Select a trait scale (e.g., the Marital Satisfaction Scale) that has been developed in one country but cross-validated in another country. Search the literature for cross-validation studies. Discuss the following:
general rationale for cross-validation studies
the psychometric soundness (reliability/validity) of the scale as developed in the original country
the specific rational for cross-validating this particular scale, and the new psychometric soundness of the scale
any closing thoughts you may have (e.g., usefulness of the scale in heterogenous groups, limitations of the scale, future directions for research)
I have attached a brief article for some context; feel free to use this paper as a source.
Recommended length: 2-3 pages
Sources: At a minimum, you will need TWO JOURNAL ARTICLES (one for each culture in which the validation was done)
