The psychometric properties of the Parents’ Preference Test (PPT)revisited

The psychometric properties of the Parents’ Preference Test (PPT)revisited The Parents’ Preference Test (PPT) is an attempt to construct apicture-based, objective measure of parenting style, in order to create astarting point for designing an intervention. The PPT measures four differentconstructs: Focus of Attention, Experiential Modality, Regulation Style andEnergy. Since its publication nearly a decade ago, the PPT has been used inseveral Danish institutions, but the initial data stem from a rather selectsample, wherefore it seems pertinent to re-evaluate the initially establishedpsychometric properties.The current study is a re-investigation of these properties of the PPT, based ona new sample of 1466 subjects. It was found that three out of the four PPTscales are Rasch-homogeneous, whereas the final scale (Energy) is not. Hence,the PPT does display valid psychometric properties, albeit to a lesser degreethan initially assumed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nordic Psychology American Psychological Association

Abstract

The Parents’ Preference Test (PPT) is an attempt to construct apicture-based, objective measure of parenting style, in order to create astarting point for designing an intervention. The PPT measures four differentconstructs: Focus of Attention, Experiential Modality, Regulation Style andEnergy. Since its publication nearly a decade ago, the PPT has been used inseveral Danish institutions, but the initial data stem from a rather selectsample, wherefore it seems pertinent to re-evaluate the initially establishedpsychometric properties.The current study is a re-investigation of these properties of the PPT, based ona new sample of 1466 subjects. It was found that three out of the four PPTscales are Rasch-homogeneous, whereas the final scale (Energy) is not. Hence,the PPT does display valid psychometric properties, albeit to a lesser degreethan initially assumed.
