Validation of the Truman Burnout Inventory: A New Scale to Measure Job Burnout
Kimberly S. Wilson
Dr. Teresa Heckert, Faculty Mentor

Our purpose was to create a new job burnout scale. Unlike the MBI-GS, our scale will be free to researchers and makes use of Likert-type, rather than frequency, response options. The inventory has three subscales, consistent with the dimensions identified by Maslach, Jackson, and Leiter (1996) (i.e., emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and professional efficacy). Preliminary analyses suggest that our scale is a reliable and valid alternative to the MBI-GS.
