The Construction of the Prosocial Personality Battery for High School Students
- The present study reports the results of an attempt to modify Penner L.A. (2002) Prosocial Personality Battery (PSB) to suit Myanmar cultural setting. The PSB developed by Penner assesses prosocial personality for high school students. The PSB scale contains 30 items, which can be answered in a five-point scale. This scale was subjected to standard item analysis procedure. The PSB was administered to 194 high school students from No.2, BEHS at Magway. After being item analysis, 26 items were significant and remaining 4 items were not significant. The reliability of the PSB was determined by the method of internal consistency. The value of Cronbach alpha was .66. The validity coefficient was found to be .78, significant at .01 levels. The Myanmar version of the PSB is quite satisfactory in reliability as well as in validity. So, this scale is ready to use for Myanmar population.
