The Investigation of the Properties of Form C Psychometrics from the Multi-dimensional Scale of the Locus of Health Control on Normal Adults




 Background: The purpose of the current study is the investigation of the properties of Form C psychometrics from the Multi-dimensional Scale of the Locus of Health Control in Iranian community. Methods: In order to study the psychometric properties of Form C from the ultidimensional Scale of the Locus of of Health Control, about 375 employees of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences (160 males and 215 females) with a mean age of 38/13 ± 8/5 (range of 21-78 years old) were randomly selected using stratified sampling method. All the participants responded to Lutsen Internal-External Control (IPC) questionnaire as well as Form C of the Multi-dimensional Scale of the Locus of Health. About 5% of the participants had high school education and 67% had university education among which 65% were married. Results: Regarding instrument reliability, the results of this study show that the Multidimensional Scale of the Locus of Health Control (Form C) has a good reliability, since the alpha coefficient calculated in this study was 0/849 and in the subscale scales 0/63 to 0/79. In terms of instrumental validity, formal validity, coincidence, and structural validity were used. The results showed that the validity of the translated Persian version was very similar to the original form and results in western societies. Conclusion: According to the findings of this review, this form of scale is good for measuring the health control source in the adult population.
