To evaluate college students' well-being multi-dimensionally, we adapted the PERMA-Profiler (Butler & Kern, 2015) into Japanese, and added three original items. The KIT (Kanazawa Institute of Technology) version of the PERMA-Profiler was administered to 1332 college students. Evaluating based on "reliability" showed that measurement to be applicable to Japanese in all the domains as a scale of measure (Shiotani et al., 2015). However, the analysis on the item level was insufficient. The present report shows the item-total correlations in all domains of the measure. Almost all items of all domains except "Relationship" had moderately acceptable values (r = .32 - .60). All three items included in "Relationship" showed relatively low values (r = .29 - .34). We will discuss the results from the cultural point of view and adaptability to the Japanese population.
