The purpose of this study is to test the psychometric properties of the Indonesian version of the EPOCH Measure of Adolescent Well-being. Previous adaptations and criticisms have suggested that this measurement does not fit well with Indonesian culture. However, the successful adaptation of this measure to Chinese culture highlights the need to retest its validity in Indonesia. A total of 121 students from a public vocational school participated in a one-shot online survey of the Indonesian EPOCH Measure of Adolescent Well-being, which included data on demographics and self-reported generic skills. The five-factor model was supported by confirmatory factor analysis and was found to be superior to both the one-factor and higher-order models. Furthermore, the measure revealed that adolescent well-being had a weak correlation with demographic constructs, but a strong correlation with generic skills. We conclude that the Indonesian version of the EPOCH Measure could be used as an assessment of adolescent well-being in Indonesia.
