Abstract
Research on psychological well-being has been done in many countries, including Indonesia. However, the instruments for psychological well-being measurement available in Bahasa Indonesia are limited. This study aimed to adapt the EPOCH Measure of Adolescent Well-being which was developed by Kern et.al. [1] in Bahasa Indonesia. The EPOCH Measure of Adolescents Well-being assesses five positive psychological characteristics, i.e. Engagement, Perseverance, Optimism, Connectedness, and Happiness [1]. The adaptation of the instrument was done through some stages as suggested by Beaton [2]. The adaptation process was done through translation, synthesis, back translation, experts review and pre-testing. The translated version of the instrument was distributed to 40 junior high school students to check the readability of the instrument. The final version of the translated instrument was then tested to 514 junior high school students in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Item total correlation shows that there are 18 items that shows high correlation (rtt .360 - .505) and 2 items that shows low correlation (rtt .173 and .289). The translated version of the instrument shows reliability of the alpha coefficient .842. There is a need to do improvement on the translation on the items which has low item total correlations
