This article relates the development of the Work Stressor Scale for high school teachers in China. In total, 798 school teachers took part in the research. Factor analyses of the generated items produced 8 factors, namely Leadership and Management, Workload, Examination for entering a higher school, Students, Interpersonal Relations, Self and Body-Mind, Society, Occupational Development and Promotion. Reliability was strong, with a Cronbach’s α = 0.938 for homogeneity reliability and r = 0.830 for split-half reliability. This scale shows promise as a measure of work stressors in the Chinese context.
