BANDEIRA, Marina; DEL PRETTE, Zilda Aparecida Pereira; DEL PRETTE, Almir  y  MAGALHAES, Thiago. Validating scales of social skills, behavior problems and academic competence (SSRS-BR) for elementary school. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.2, pp.271-282. ISSN 0102-3772.

Besides the growing interest on social skills, there are few scales available in Brazil. This research validated the SSRS scale, which evaluates social skills, behavior problems, and academic competence of elementary school students. The participants were 416 students (224 boys and 192 girls) from the first to the fourth elementary school grades, from public and private schools of five cities of four Brazilian states as well as 312 parents and 86 teachers of these children. The results showed some components structure explaining 40% to 62% of data variance. The internal consistency analysis, measured by Cronbach coefficients, showed the following values for each scale: social skills (student=0,78; parents=0,86; teachers=0,94), behavior problem (parents=0,83; teachers=0,91), and academic competence (0,98). Concerning on the temporal stability, results showed positive and significant correlations between test-retest applications for the global scores of the social skills (students: r=0,78; parents: r=0,69; teachers: r=0,71), behavior problems (parents: r=0,75; teachers: r=0,80), and academic competence (r=0,73) scales.
