Objectives: To test the validity, reliability, and uses of the multidimensional Salutogenic Wellness Promotion Scale (SWPS).
Methods: Self-reported (n = 2140) demographic and scale data from a large university (23,000+ students) were collected and analyzed. Dependent measures included grade point average (GPA) and perceived health.
Results: Analyses confirmed the SWPS's 7-factor multidimensional structure and its use for describing and predicting associated outcomes. The analyses of frequency distributions, means, correlations, and regressions found significant relationships between measured health behaviors, perceived health, and GPA.
Conclusions: The SWPS provides valid and reliable information about positive health potential for research and field health professionals.
