Abstract

We present the results of the adaptation of the IHS-Del-Prette (Inventario de Habilidades Sociales, in English, Social Skills Inventory) to a sample of Argentinean college students. Firstly, we addressed the backward translation and carried out an equivalence study of the Portuguese and Spanish versions of the scale. The results showed the two versions were equivalent, as we obtained correlations lower than .50 in only 5 items. Secondly, we performed item analysis by calculating discrimination indexes and item-total correlations. Results indicated that the items are sensitive to differentiate between high and low social-skill groups. Exploratory factor analysis carried out with a sample of 602 college students yielded five factors that explained 26.5% of the total variance, although our data did not completely match the original factor structure. We also obtained moderate alpha values for the subscales, but high reliability for the total scale. Lastly, group differences between males and females are presented to provide evidence of validity. We discuss the implications of the results and present future lines of inquiry.

Se presentan los resultados de la adaptación del IHS-Del-Prette (Inventario de Habilidades Sociales) en una muestra de universitarios argentinos. Primero, se hizo una traducción inversa y se llevó a cabo un estudio de equivalencia de las versiones portuguesa y española de la escala. Los resultados mostraron que las dos versiones eran equivalentes, ya que se obrtuvieron correlaciones menores de 0.50 únicamente en 5 ítems. Después se analizaron los ítems mediante el cálculo de índices de discriminación y correlaciones ítem-total. Los resultados indicaron que los ítems son sensibles para discriminar entre grupos de altas y bajas habilidades sociales. Análisis factorial exploratorio llevado a cabo con una muestra de 602 universitarios produjo cinco factores que explicaban 26.5% de la varianza total, aunque nuestros datos no se ajustaban totalmente a la estructura factorial original. También se obtuvieron valores alfa moderados para las subescalas, pero una alta fiabilidad para la escala total. Finalmente, las diferencias grupales entre hombres y mujeres se presentan para contribuir evidencia de la validez. Las implicaciones de los resultados se comentan y se presentan futuras líneas de investigación.
