Using the RRM
The RRM is a versatile measure of internal resilience that can typically be completed in under 5 minutes. It has been tested with individuals aged 16+, but may also be suitable for younger ages.
It may be combined with other measures such as the CYRM/ARM to give a more holistic appraisal of an individual’s resilience.
Scoring the RRM
All items are positively worded, meaning that scores can be summed for all items to produce an overall rugged resilience score. For more information about scoring and interpretation, please see the manual which accompanies the measure.
The study by Jefferies, Vanstone, & Ungar (2022) determined that the RRM has good content validity (face validity and construct validity), criterion validity (concurrent, convergent, and discriminant validity), and incremental validity.
The same study also determined the internal reliability of the measure to be:
Cronbach’s alpha (α) = .87.
McDonald’s omega (ωh) = .83.
