CASTILLO, Ramón D et al. Design and Validation of a Scale of Communicative and Social Skill for Children. Ter Psicol [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.2, pp.173-180. ISSN 0718-4808.

This arricie show results about design and validation of the communicative and social competence scale (ECCSO) in 1673 Chilean children, between 9 and 15 years oíd (669 male and 1004 female sex). Cronbach's alpha for children, parents and teachers formats were 0.93, 0.95 and 0.97 respectively. Exploratory Factor Analy sis (EFA) was made for children's format showing 8 factors to explain 30.16% of variance. The ECCSO could predict 50% of variability in the scores of Rosenberg's Self-Esteem Scale. The convergent validity was calculated for those children (n=52) who were assessed by parents and teachers; finding a modérate convergence between children and parents scores; divergence between children and teachers; and nuil con-vergence between teachers and parents. Girls showed a total score in ECCSO higher than boys; differences between grade, and interaction effect between age and sex were not significant.
