This study tested the validity and reliability of the Private Victory (PV) using items from 5 of subscales of the Student Readiness Inventory (SRI). The sample consisted of 230 college students from a small liberal arts college. After normalizing and removing inconsistent items, the internal consistency of the three PV subscales were (α = .62, .72, and .73). The SRI items displayed an internal consistency of (α = .75). The SRI shared significant correlations with all 3 PV subscales (r = .44, .45, and .66, p < .01) and college GPA (r = .28, p < .01). These results establish a baseline for the construct validity of the PV and indicate the need to refine its subscales.
