"College Alcohol Problems Scale (CAPS)”, Brian McCabe, PhD, PI

The purpose of this study is to develop and validate a Spanish-language version of the College Alcohol Problems Scale (Maddock et al., 2001).

This brief, 8-item scale assesses both personal and social problems related to drinking for college students. A Spanish version was translated and back-translated by a bilingual team of experts in youth and college student mental health. Hispanic college student participants are recruited anonymously via the Internet and in collaboration Florida International University. This study will compare the structure of the scale when administered in English and Spanish to Hispanic students.
