Abstract Vando's (1970) 54-Item Reducer-Augmenter Scale (RAS) was completed by 549 Australian university students. Factor analysis of scores yielded three dimensions analogous to Canadian results: auditory modality, kinesthetic activity, and sensation seeking. Refactoring 18 RAS items produced a test explaining almost twice as much variance as the original scale. Factor scores of both tests at best duplicated the validity of total scores against constructs reflecting stimulus need. Results justify the use of Vando's total RAS in Australia.
