Abstract
Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Children Aggression Scale-Parent Version. CAS-P developed to help evaluate severity, frequency and diversity of aggressive behavior. Methods: The scale has 33 items representing five domains. The CAS-P was completed for 473 clinically referred children’s parents. Validity was evaluated by examining the relationship of CAS-P scores to other criteria parent rating scales and for the construct validity confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was conducted. For the reliability the internal consistency were examined. Results: Consistent with previous research, confirmatory factor analysis of the CAS-P confirmed the good-fit of the original model (χ2=842.15; sd=302; χ2/sd)=2.7; RMSEA=0.069; CFI=0.96; NFI=0.95). In order to test the scale for construct validity, the Child Behavior Checklist/4-18 and DSM-IV based Behavior Disorder Screening and rating scale were administered to participants, and the correlations with clinical constructs were in the expected direction. Also the reliability analysis revealed that the CAS-P subscales demonstrated high internal consistency. Conclusion: In the light of the findings, it was concluded that the Turkish version of CAS-P could be used as a reliable and valid tool in research and treatment contexts.

Key words: aggression, scale, parental evaluation, reliability, validity



Çocuklar için Saldırganlık Ölçeği Anne-Baba Formu: Türkçe geçerlilik ve güvenilirlik çalışması

Ozet
Amaç: Bu araştırmada Çocuklar için Saldırganlık Ölçeği Anne-Baba Formunun (ÇSÖ-ABF) psikometrik özelliklerinin incelenmesi amaçlanmıştır. Ölçek, saldırgan davranışların şiddetini, sıklığını, yaygınlığını ve çeşitliliğini ölçmek için geliştirilmiştir. Yöntem: ÇSÖ-ABF, 33 madde ve beş alt ölçekten oluşmaktadır. Ölçek, saldırgan davranışlar gösteren, tanı ve tedavi için çocuk psikiyatrisi kliniğine yönlendirilen 473 ilköğretim öğrencisinin anne-babalarına uygulanmıştır. Ölçeğin geçerliliği kriter ölçeklerle ilişkileri incelenerek saptanmış ve yapı geçerliliği bağlamında doğrulayıcı faktör analizi yapılmıştır. Güvenilirlik içinse iç tutarlılık hesaplanmıştır. Bulgular: Önceki araştırma sonuçları ile tutarlı biçimde, ÇSÖ-ABF için yapılan doğrulayıcı faktör analizi, özgün ölçekle örtüşen iç yapıyı doğrulamıştır (χ2=842.15; sd=302; χ2/sd)=2.7; RMSEA=0.069; CFI=0.96; NFI=0.95). Katılımcılara, ÇSÖ-ABF’nin yanı sıra, yapı geçerliliği bağlamında, 4-18 yaşları arasındaki çocuk ve Gençler için Davranış Değerlendirme Ölçeği ve dikkat eksikliği ve yıkıcı davranış bozuklukları için DSM-IV’e Dayalı Tarama ve Değerlendirme Ölçeği uygulanmış ve beklenen yönde ilişkiler bulunmuştur. Güvenilirlik analizleri de, ÇSÖ-ABF’nin iç tutarlılığı yüksek alt boyutlara sahip olduğunu göstermiştir. Sonuç: Araştırmanın bulgularına göre, ÇSÖ-ABF’nin Türkçe formunun araştırma ve tedavi alanında kullanılabilecek güvenilir ve geçerli bir ölçüm aracı olduğu düşünülmektedir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Saldırganlık, ölçek, anne baba değerlendirmesi geçerlilik, güvenilirlik
