Abstract


The purposes of the present study were to translate the Parenting Sense of
Competence (PSOC) scale and to determine its initial psychometric properties.
Three hundred mothers were selected as participants from Dhaka city who have
children aged 6 to 10 years. Collected data were analyzed to determine
psychometrics by using Cronbach alpha, Spearman-Brown’s split-half and
exploratory factor analysis. Results showed that internal consistencies were:
Cronbach α = 0.663 and split-half reliability r = 0.636. As both internal
consistencies value were quite similar that would make PSOC scale’s reliability
more supportive. Initially validity was conducted on pilot basis by measuring
content validity and construct validity (r = 0.628, p < 0.01). Study limitations and
further implications were also discussed.
