Validation of the spanish version of the prosocial behavior toward different targets scale

By Maria Belen Mesurado, María Paulina Guerra, Florencia de Sanctis and Lucas Marcelo Rodriguez

Abstract

The objective of this article was to validate the Spanish version of a prosociality scale that evaluates prosociality toward family members, friends, and strangers. This objective was developed in two studies. In Study 1, exploratory factor analysis was conducted to test the construct validity of the scale. The reliability was tested using McDonald?s omega coefficient and coefficient H. In Study 2, confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to confirm the structure of the scale. Moreover, the convergent validity of the Prosocial Behavior Scale toward Different Targets was studied by analyzing its correlation with other well-known scales: the Prosocial Tendencies Measure and Interpersonal Reactivity Index.Fil: Mesurado, Maria Belen.
