유아의 친사회적 행동 평가 척도 개발 연구
A Study on the Development of Prosocial Behavior Scale for Young Children
Kim Yeong Og
Construction of the Prosocial Behavior Scale for young children(PBSYC) was based on document research and interviews with kindergarten teachers and child development specialists. After 200 kindergarten teachers evaluated the 42 items of the PBSYC, factor analysis was conducted; items were categorized into seven factors: leadership, helping, communication, concern, proximity, sharing and empathy. As factos showed high correlation. The prosocial behavior of 306 4 to 5 year old children was measured with the PBSYC and compared with the Babock, Hartle, & Lamme(1995) scale. The resulting correlation between the 2 scales was.764. Further tests indicate that the PBSYC is a valid and reliable scale for the measurement of prosocial behavior in young children.
