Abstract


OBJECTIVES
This study was conducted to investigate the reliability and validity of the short form, parental version of the Korean SNAP-IV.
METHODS
The Korean SNAP-IV, SNAP, CPRS were applied to the groups of 605 control and 94 ADHD children, aged 6-12 years. Test-retest reliability, internal consistency and split half reliability were performed as a reliability test and criterion validity, factor analysis and discriminant validity were also performed as a validity test.
RESULTS
The Coefficient of test-retest reliability and split half reliability were 0.84/0.86 and 0.73/0.78 for both inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity subscales. The Internal consistency was also excellent. The Criterion validity and discriminant validity rates were between 0.59 and 0.82. Three factors were identified in factor analysis.
CONCLUSION
This study demonstrates that the short form, parental version of the Korean SNAP-IV is a reliable and valid instrument in the evaluation and screening of ADHD-related behaviors in children.
