Abstract : This study presents a validation of the Multidimensional Students' Life Satisfaction Scale (MSLSS, Huebner, 1994) into French on the basis of an 853 student sample selected from grades 9 and 12. The internal reliabilities of all sub-scales (Cronbach's Alpha coefficient ) were above the criterion of 0.70. Exploratory analysis supported a five factor solution, whilst the confirmatory analysis enabled the validation of a six-factor model with five first-order factors fitting onto one second order factor. Convergent analysis demonstrated that the MSLSS correlates well with depression and other well-being measures, as expected. The MSLSS was found to be reliable and valid for the French context. Furthermore, it appears that the scale, and more specifically its academic dimension, is moderately predictive of student achievement.
