In this study, Teacher Stress inventory (TSI) originally developed by Fimian (1984) was adapted and translated into Urdu language for the measurement of levels and sources of stress among school teachers in Pakistan. The inventory was translated by using "Back Translation" technique and was administered to 120 school teachers from Islamabad. Rawalpindi, and Chakwal. The reliability coefficient of the translated scale is .85 for the entire scale and for subscales it ranges from .63 to .80. Item-total correlation was also computed to find out the internal consistency of scale. The results indicate that Urdu translated TSI is a reliable and valid scale that can be used for measuring levels and sources of work stress in schoolteachers of Pakistan.
