Validation of the Future Scenarios Questionnaire (FSQ)
- The primary purpose of this study was to develop the Myanmar version of the Future Scenarios Questionnaire based on a translation of the Lundell’s (2008) original instrument. Lundell (2008) developed the Future Scenarios Questionnaire to measure future oriented emotion socialization. To examine the reliability of the Myanmar version of the Future Scenarios Questionnaire, a questionnaire survey of 107 preschool children’s mother from Mandalay, Meiktila and Shwe Bo were conducted. According to the factor analysis, results indicated a clear two-factor solution (i.e. two factors with Eigenvalues greater than 1.0). Cumulatively, these two factors accounted for 63.88% of the variance. Internal consistencies for the different subscales were acceptable with Cronbach’s alphas ranging from .57 (Contingencies) to .84 (Encourage Expression). These resulted two-factor on the scale were organized as a single test named “Myanmar version of the Future Scenarios Questionnaire”. The results show that the Myanmar version of the Future Scenarios Questionnaire is a reliable test. In addition, the pattern of relations between the Future Scenarios Questionnaire and several maternal characteristics was examined in order to demonstrate some construct validity. So it is obvious that values of reliability coefficient for these scales are high enough to warrant a safe application.
