About Problem Solving Inventory
Problem Solving Inventory, Form-A (PSI-A) is a 35 item instrument developed by Heppner and Petersen (1982) to assess the individuals’ perception of his/her problem-solving ability. The inventory is rated on a 6-point Likert scale from 1 (always) to 6 (never). A higher total score in this inventory indicates an insufficient ability perception of problem-solving. Turkish adaptation of this inventory was done by Şahin, Şahin and Heppner (1993).
The score range is between 32 and 192. The reliability study for the inventory was conducted with 244 university students and the Cronbach alpha reliability coefficient was found to be .88. The criterion-related validity study showed that the correlation coefficient between the total scores from the PSI and the Beck Depression Inventory was found to be .33 and .45 with the Trait Anxiety Inventory. Construct validity showed that the PSI was able to classify groups with (90 %) and without anxiety (80 %)
