Abstract

Drinking is prevalent among high school students. Many psychometrically sound measures address alcohol expectancies, consequences of drinking, and subjective response in adults, but these measures have not been examined in an adolescent sample. This research serves to examine the psychometric properties of these measures in adolescents. If the constructs seen in adults replicate in an adolescent sample, these measures can be used to make predictions about future alcohol use and problems.
