Abstract: Although a preoccupation with material possessions is a growing concern in Chinese adolescents, there is a lack of validated measures of adolescent materialism in different Chinese contexts. Based on a thorough literature review, the Chinese Adolescent Materialism Scale (CAMS) was developed and administered in 1658 Chinese secondary school students. Results showed that the CAMS was internally consistent. Factor analyses showed that three factors were intrinsic to the scale. Consistent with expectations, the CAMS scores were significantly related to measures of morality, egocentrism, spirituality, and empathy. Analyses of responses to the CAMS items revealed that a significant proportion of respondents displayed materialistic beliefs.
