Aim: The main purpose of the present study was to investigate psychometric properties of the Emotional adjustment Measure (EAM, Rubio, Aguado, Hontangas& Hernandez, 2007) among Iranian university students. Methods: 324 university students (130 male, 194 female) completed the EAM, the Perceived Stress Reactivity Scale (PSRS, Schlotz, Yim, Zoccola, Jansen & Schulz, 2011) and the Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile-II (HPLP-II, Walker, Sechrist& Pender, 1995). The confirmatory factor analysis method and internal consistency were used to compute the EAM's construct validity and reliability, respectively. Also, in order to examine the construct validity of the EAM, we computed correlations between different dimensions of EAM with different dimension of Perceived Stress Reactivity Scale and Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile-II. Results: The results of confirmatory factor analysis indicated that 2-factor structure of the EAM consisted lack of physiologic and emotional arousal regulation factor and hopelessness and wishful thinking factor had good fit to data in the Iranian sample. Also, correlational analyses between different dimensions of EAM with different dimension of Perceived Stress Reactivity Scale and Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile-II provided initial evidence for the EAM construct validity. Cronbach’s α coefficients ranged from 0/84 to 0/91 for total factor and its dimensions. Discussion: In sum, these findings provide evidence for the validity and reliability of the EAM as an instrument to measure of emotional adjustment among Iranian university students.
