A Psychometric Evaluation of the Intention Scale for Providers-Direct Items
- 18 Downloads
This study examined the psychometric properties of the Intention Scale for Providers-Direct Items (ISP-D; 16 items), a questionnaire for assessing therapists’ evidence-based practice attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, and behavioral intentions. Participants were community mental health providers from the State of Hawaii. A confirmatory factor analysis provided support for a revised 14-item ISP-D measure that fits the data reasonably well. Subscales of this revised ISP-D demonstrated acceptable to good internal consistency, with the exception of the Perceived Behavioral Control subscale. The majority of convergent validity correlation patterns between the ISP-D and related constructs were significant and in predicted directions.
